The package comes bubble wrapped in a small cardboard
box. It is all packed very safely for transit.
Within you will find the receiver (which hooks up to your
pc via an outdated serial connection), the credit card sized remote
control, a lithium battery and a burned CD which includes the software
bundle and instructions.
The remote is very small. This is one of its selling features.
It is the same width and height as a credit card although it is thicker.
You can see how it looks next to the standard sized lithium battery.
The remote fits right into your palm.
Here is a close-up shot of the receiver. It has that whole
Star Trek thing happenin'. The IR receiver only works with this remote.
You cannot configure it to work with other devices.
