Ricavision Vista Remote

Media hub designer Ricavision today said that it will uses its presence at CES to introduce the Microsoft-branded Windows Vista SideShow Media Center Remote Control. The remote is likely to be the first that explicity uses the upcoming operating system's unique features and will take advantage of Vista's SideShow technology to view and control information from a Vista Home Premium PC without having to switch the main display.

Owners will not only have direct access to music, photos, and videos from the remote, but will also have the choice of linking the remote to Vista's Gadget mini programs for e-mail, RSS, weather and other live data to view it when away from the TV screen. Ricavision says it will demonstrate the new remote at the CES expo next month and hopes to ship the completed hardware in April. Click through for a full image. [Via Engadget]
