Check out the this remote prototype from GenosTV called the Cyclops Multifunction Universal Controller. The company will be debuting working prototypes at CES next year with hopes of schmoozing bundle deals with big HDTV brands such as Sony and Samsung. By the looks of the full QWERTY keyboard, this universal remote will come in handy with the new line of internet ready televisions rolling out. Other than the amazing image above, not much else is known of this device.... I guess we'll have to wait until CES 2011 to get more details.
...Great design, but I'm curious how ergonomic the circular shape is. I can see it being cumbersome picking it up and pointing it correctly at the TV just to adjust the volume... although rumor has it that the remote may link to the TV via bluetooth, which would solve this possible issue.
