CES 2009: Day two - Panasonic Easy Touch Remote

Despite the amazingly simple remotes churned out by the likes of Harmony and Universal Remote Control, remotes festooned with buttons continue to baffle, confuse and anger many users. Panasonic demonstrated a concept called the "Easy Touch Remote" that allows for dual-handed, Wii-style control over your TV. (Likely without the Wii's constant reminders to put the remote down and go outside and play. Look, Wii, I'll tell YOU when I'm done!) The remote automatically adapts to right, left, single or dual handed control depending on how it is being held. Check out the video to see the remote in action.-John Sciacca
