Philips uWand spells out future for remotes

Demonstrated at IBC recently was Philips’ wonderfully named uWand. Unfortunately nothing to do with Harry Potter, it apparently enables you to sit on a sofa and interact with screen menus and objects as if you are actually touching them.


The uWand 3D pointer features a small infrared camera embedded in the handheld device which gives uWand ‘remote touch’ capabilities so you can navigate on-screen applications by pointing, clicking and using fluid 3D gestures.
