LAS VEGAS — A company called Seeker Technologies is making a remote for your mobile phone that solves the problem of what to do when you’re in a meeting or at the movies and you want to answer a call but you don’t want to start talking until you leave the room.
Seeker showed off a remote called the Pipsqueak, a small Bluetooth remote that you can clip to your purse or belt. When you get a call on your mobile phone, the Pipsqueak vibrates and shows the caller ID. Then you can either answer the call on your phone, ignore or delay answer — it answers the call, then tells the caller that you are about to answer but to please hold until you can get to a place where you can talk.
Here is a video of James Randall, president and chief executive of Seeker based in Manhasset, N.Y. Apologies for the sound quality. This was taped at a Consumer Electronics Show press event Tuesday night where there were hundreds of other people in the room. You can find out more about Pipsqueak at www.seekerpnd.com.
