MX-6000 universal controller could almost control time

The MX-6000 is the first home theater remote control to offer two independent communications and control methods simultaneously. The MX-6000 provides both a narrow band 418 MHz transmitter for instant control of conventional home theater components and a Wi-Fi transceiver for high-speed transfer of cover art, artist, album, and title metadata. The MX-6000 is for the complete control freak. The two-way 4.3-inch touchscreen can take control over everything in your home theater, as well as the digital content on PCs, iPods, and any other content storage attached to your home network. Users can browse and play music and video without even knowing which player is needed. All of your digital content is presented as one mighty media library. The MX-6000 is also connected to the Internet; pre-programmed modules enable instant access to personalized news, sports, weather, and stocks. Unlike other devices, the MX-6000’s news, sports, weather, and stocks modules are user-configurable without a programmer or a PC. On a whim, you can check out the opposing team’s scores, or get the weather forecast for a vacation destination.

You seriously did not think you would find this gadget at your nearest store now, did you? The MX-6000 will run for approx. $1,499 and will only be available from professional installers.
