RockIR (Infrared/DAP module)


  • Universal host DAP compatibility
  • Setting standards for interoperability between players
  • Enhancing the market playing field for digital audio
  • Promoting the community driven design of F/OSS to make a tangible product for the masses
  • Fun!!

Ok, what is it??

RockIR will be a seamless way to connect older and present digital audio devices to a gateway of freedom; transmitting data wirelessly through short range communication as to not be interfering in a world of many devices, flipping through channels on your television via a handy all-around infrared remote, and after charging, ready to become an independent player altogether.
