Caavo's first shot at a smart universal remote (and the hub to match) was clever, but expensive -- at $399, you had to be a serious enthusiast to enjoy it. You might not have those qualms this time around. The company has unveiled the Control Center, a combination remote and hub that includes much of the intelligence with a $100 up-front price (more on that later). It gets there in part by cutting many of the bordering-on-overkill features you saw in the original hardware. Gone are the wood panels, the hidden browser to sign you into services, an infrared adapter and half of the eight HDMI inputs. The core, however, is familiar: it's a media center overseer that uses machine vision to juggle all your devices.
