Elan EMC – Smart Remote Controller

25 03 2009

Dunno if I agree with Mark from Gizmodo (source of this news) on this being a brilliant product… but at least some of the ideas are interesting:

Elan’s Smart Remote Controller, which isn’t for sale yet, acts as several control devices… but mostly as a double touchpad that allows some stuff multitouch screen does.
It seems Panasonic also presented a similar device on the same event: CES 2009.
My bet is more that this will be yet another gimmick device that’ll be forgotten not long after it’s release (like so many others) than this becoming a standard in the future.
But it’s my opinnion only… I might be wrong.
