TV Compass sneaks WiFi, LCD equipped Smart Remote by FCC


If you're looking for a little bit of extra snazz in your TV remote, then you might be interested in the Windows Embedded Smart Remote from TV Compass, which takes a few Windows Mobile interface cues, mixes in some WiFi and a LCD, and manages to do little more than its smart remote peers, just with a little more ugly. The remote, which just recently passed through the FCC, does all that usual channel-changing and home theater control stuff, plus adds in WiFi for programming guides off the internets. You can also access news, weather and the like via WiFi and the click365 service. No word on detailed specs, launch date or price, but perhaps we'll spot this thing in Vegas this January.
