I have a feeling I was duped, but I wasn’t the only one. The Oval model is almost always used in articles that discuss the Space Commander as the first wireless remote control. But it seems that the Pedal model may really have been the first. My hunch is that Pedal was used from around 1956 to 1958 and then Oval was used from 1958 to 1965ish. After that, other models of Space Commander showed up. Zenith just kept using the same name over and over. Very confusing.. Space Commander the ideal solution to apartment storage and garage storage problems. Our over car bonnet storage cabinets, and BikeBox keep your belongings secure.. Inside the Space Commander 600. Now with four aluminum rods, one for each button. Notice how all the parts are identical to the 300. They planned the manufacturing out well in advance so they could simply use the same molds in production..
