This could be the ultimate HTPC controller

This little controller is butt-ugly and crude, but I still want one really bad. Maybe Santa will bring me one.

Right now there isn’t many good ways to control a PC from your couch. Full size keyboards are a pain, standard mice are awkward, and those waving-through-the-air gyro mice are overrated. This little controller with a touchpad up top and a keyboard on the bottom seems to have just about everything I need for my media center PC. It’s controlled via a wireless USB dongle and only costs $62 at USB Geek. Forget Santa, I can’t wait that long. Sold.
