URC Unveils MX-5000 One Handed Remote With Haptic Feedback Touchscreen
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.
