ShuffleRemote: iPod Shuffle and Apple Remote combined

By andy

When you’re worried about losing two small Apple products — namely the 2nd generation iPod Shuffle and the Apple Remote — then this hack is for you.

The two devices have a similar shape, so were disassembled and then the iPod’s circuit board was connected up to the Apple Remote’s buttons.

There’s also some other clever stuff going on in there — without headphones it functions as the Apple Remote, but when the headphones are connected the device works like an iPod and automatically shuts off anything playing in iTunes on the associated Mac – though apparently it still functions as a remote which could get a tad annoying.

Anyway, it’s a cool little hack if only for its own sake.
