Video: This vuvuzela is also a (soccer) remote

beIN has introduced a fully-functioning (and loud) vuvuzela that can also be used as a remote control. When the aptly-named GameChanger is blown, a mini microphone recognizes the vuvuzela sound signature, instructing the platform’s 8-bit, Atmel-based…
