New Smart Remote – the shape of control to come

img-controls-dancing-2Every now and then something interesting comes along that catches our interest. In this case it is the new Smart Remote from Sevenhugs. Exhibited recently at CES, and launched on Kickstarter (exceeding the investment goal by over 20 times!), this remote is a fresh take on the concept of the programmable remote.


Put simply, you point it at what you want to control – it senses what you’re pointing at, and changes personality to control it.


With a touch screen and colour display, we think it is a neat device, and likely to be one of the first of a variety of new generation remote controls. First production units should be available in June 2017.
