Remote Tracks User Habits


Arizona State University and Intel have collaborated on a device that identifies the way family members use the remote. Volunteers entered a PIN number, did some channel surfing and the result was that they were traced with 60 - 90% accuracy. Look at it as a way to personalize access or get closer to the era of Big Brother.

CYCLOPS Universal Remote


The CYCLOPS was originally conceived as a keyboard for the Genos TV Cable box, but has morphed into an ergonomically correct universal remote. It can connect via Bluetooth to most cell phones, turning it into a modem. Another version is being designed as a video game controller. Genos' founder Rob Shambro first designed it out of Play Dough, proving that great minds need little in the way of tools to be creative.

Smartphone Pass Key Testing at Holiday Inns


Two Holiday Inns are testing InterContinental Hotels Group technology that allows guests to sneak past the front desk and use their smartphones to open their doors. The Chicago O' Hare Rosemont and Houston Downtown Convention Center locations will feature the technology. IGH exec Bryson Koehler says the company is also testing RFID but feels that the smartphone technology, which can be used with iPhones, Blackberrys and Android phones among others, is more convenient.
