Doc with his remote control device.

Remote control was the operation of an apparatus from a distance using an electrical device, usually handheld.


Emmett Brown used a remote control device — which was similar to that for a radio-controlled car — to operate the DeLorean time machine, with Einstein inside, on the parking lot at Twin Pines Mall during his execution of the world's first temporal displacement on October 26, 1985.

In 1985A, as Biff Tannen and his guests were enjoying a Clint Eastwood flick, Marty McFly turned the television off with the remote and then tossed the device into the hot tub.

The scene screens that exist by 2015 are operated by remote control as seen when Lorraine Baines McFly is changing the channel with one.
