Remotes are hard to figure out as an adult, so we can only imagine how frustrating they are for toddlers. One dad built a basic and large remote for his kid, so he could control videos on a PC. Pops gutted a USB number pad, built a new enclosure with buttons clearly labeled, and mapped the buttons in software. Pretty rad dad!
