The remote control that lets you change the channel and dim the lights with a flick of the wrist Rea
I would love a controller like this for Windows Media Center that lets you browse the internet in a 10′ interface. Most of my web surfing is from my favorites / bookmarks, no keyboard needed.
The remote control has many similarities to Nintendo’s Wii game controller, which is now familiar to millions of children and adults.
The uWand contains a small infra-red camera which links to two beacons that are either built into the TV set or a detachable bar that sits beneath it.
The wand then creates a cursor on the set that is used to swipe through a TV channel menu or access the settings such as sound and colour.
Effectively the remote control has been turned into a flying computer mouse that can be waved in the air rather than tracked across a mouse mat.
