Bang & Olufsen, one of the more oddly named CE companies out there, has a pretty nifty looking remote control ready for you to think about buying. It’s called the Beo5 and it ships from the factory with no features. Yup, it’s a blank slate. It’s up to you, consumer, to decide what features you want in the remote. In practice I have no idea what that means. I do, however, know that the fully programmable remote has touch-sensitive LCD where you’ll input most of your commands.
It’s a remote all right. A fancy one, sure, but a remote nonetheless. I imagine you’ll have to be one of those guys who shops for expensive, all-encompassing remotes to fully appreciate its impact. For the rest of us, at least it looks neat. It sorta reminds me of those small robots from Turtles in Time.
