Haptic feedback on handheld devices, specifically cell phones, has yet to hit critical mass. But that hasn’t stopped URC from adopting the technology into their latest touchscreen remote, the MX-5000. It features a 2.7-inch touchscreen LCD which should let you control your components from just about any where in your home thanks to the built-in WiFi and RF communication. And what kind of high end remote would it be without a charging base station with IR and RS-232 components. URC hasn’t released an official price, but when it goes on sale expect it to cost about $1,500.
Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
