Media Center’s Next Gen Remote?

While we lounge around waiting for the inevitable — no, not death, I refer to the Fed hike — take a gander at this:

How cool looking is this piece of home theatre erotica?


"The SimpleRemote incorporates features like Wi-Fi connectivity, a 2.2-inch quarter VGA color screen, and support for Universal Plug and Play (UPnP) devices, to create a remarkably powerful and easy-to-use control center for digital homes. The reference design is capable of controlling multiple rooms full of devices and automatically discovering networked webcams or Wi-Fi-connected digital cameras as they’re connected to a home network.

The SimpleRemote also works with UPnP streaming media devices in a unique manner. Using the remote’s Wi-Fi connection and color screen, a user can preview photos or video files stored on networked PCs on the remote before displaying them on TV through a the streaming media bridge."


Reviews are here, and the full specs can be found at their website.

I want one!

    Nice try with the name… SimpleRemote… yeah!

    Is that “simple” like the “Clear” Skies Act or the “Healthy” Forest initiative. Tell me when you’ve completed that post-graduate work on using this thing Berry.

    Yeah, I have to say that the Harmony all-in-one remots look much nicer. There’s way too much clutter on that remote.

    It looks like it’s trying to immitate the shape (the flatness atleast) my backside takes after declining the proposition of travelling that immense distance to the set.
    So my ass likes it right away, but does it open the refrigerator? How about give me an up to date view of what’s inside the unit? Does it dial up the local personal service/beverage units in case an Urge appears? Will it answer the door when those services arrive?
    Talk about the high maintenance ass, no?
