Andre Henderson Invented the Remote Control
, "I worked on the first store and forward video on demand systems used in the lodging industry, it was a joint venture betweem Micropolis, EDS and SpectraVision/Spectradyne. That technology led to the on demand movies used in homes today. The conception and hardware design were mine, and the other engineers ((co-inventors William H Fuller, James M Rotenberry) worked on the software; one wrote the code for the remote control, the other wrote code for the remote control to work in the video distribution system.
