Tabula Rasa

By ThinkOptics, Inc.

This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.


This app requires the iWavit hardware for it to work. It will not work without it! Please see for details.

Tabula Rasa is the ultimate "Universal Remote Control" and "Editor" in one. With it, you can start creating your own Virtual Remote Controls which are either metaphors for real physical input devices or simply the product of your own imagination. It is now possible to start getting rid of the clutter in your living room and to simplify your entertainment controls to a few simple buttons.

Imagine being able to virtualize your Remotes for your TV, DVD, Cable, Radio, and Surround Sound IR, into one single touch-screen remote. On top of that, you can control any PC or Mac as well. Start getting rid of your wireless keyboard and mouse, throw away the wireless microphone, toss the games controller, discard the PC touchpad, and eliminate the wireless IR Repeater. This app gives you the control. Literally.

An old Chinese proverb says, "Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach him to fish and you feed him for a lifetime". With this Remote Control Editor you can create almost any conceivable Remote Control interface and upload it to the online Tabula Rasa Virtual Remote Control Library to share it with the rest of the world. We ALL get to fish.

To build your own Remote, you start by pressing the "Edit" button, and you will be presented with a multitude of options for creating remotes and editing them. For example, you will be able to choose from a library of different types of button graphics and background art, or you can opt to use your own artwork that you can import into the iPhone via iTunes, through other iPhone drawing programs, or via Email. Alternatively, if you wish to reproduce exactly a specific manufacturer's remote control, you can opt to take a photo of it with your iPhone and use the picture as the background in your new virtual remote. Take it one step further - take a picture of your living room entertainment center setup. When you later sit back in your sofa and want to turn on the TV, simply tap the TV on your iPhone screen.

While the iWavit is designed to be able to learn almost any IR code from another remote, in Tabula Rasa you will also be able to choose from a large library of IR Remote Control codes.

The iWavit is not just an IR Remote Control though. With it you can control any PC, Mac or Linux computer, wirelessly. Moreover, it is truly Plug & Play - NO SOFTWARE INSTALLATION is required on the PC/Mac/Linux!

The patented optical-3D tracking technology built into the "iWavit Premium" allows for absolute mouse cursor positioning. Where you point your iPhone, is where the mouse cursor will appear. (Note: There is no cursor drift over time, and no need for constant re-entering of the cursor on the screen, as is the case for Gyro-based air mice). Furthermore, each new on-screen button can be programmed to be an IR function, a USB Keyboard press, a mouse-click, a wireless microphone button, or a PC Multimedia play-back and volume function. In fact, "activities" (i.e. macros) are also supported, so each button can contain multiple functions. Complete your Virtual Remote Control by adding different sound effects for each pressed button, if so desired.

In addition to creating your own Remote Control, you are also able to browse the online Tabula Rasa Virtual Remote Control Library and download remotes that other users have contributed. Sharing of Remotes is strongly encouraged! Uploading your new creation is great for the iWavit community which can subsequently use your remote.

Now you can truly have all your remotes in one easy to find place.

Customer Reviews


I was looking for an app to simplify my remote collection, so I opened this app to see what remotes were available to down load and it is just an advertising page. His does not give me confidence to purchase the hardware required to utilize this app
