What makes a remote control work? Does it have superpowers?

Remote controls are pretty amazing things. With just a press of a button, you can change the volume of the TV or turn on the AC. Hava you ever wondered what makes a remote control work?

Ok, let’s explore the TV remote. If you see carefully, you will find a little spot at the tip of your remote. Does it look like a fake eye or may be a plastic bead? Yes, you got it right! Have you notices how this little eye lights up when you press the buttons on your remote? So, when you press the remote buttons, this little eye sends a signal of light to the TV. Thought you cannot see this light but the sensors on Tv can catch it. So your TV now know what to do.
