As you might know, Samsung is working on a smart TV that should be released later this year, and with smart TV, Samsung is planning to release a smart remote controller for it. This smart remote will use touch surface, so it won’t have many buttons like regular remote controller, and it will also use voice recognition technology. In order to change the channel or volume, you just need to move your finger to the top or to the side of your remote without pressing any buttons. However, if you don’t want to use touch surface to change the channels, you can utilize built-in microphone that will recognize your speech and turn it into a proper command. In addition, microphone can be used for text input as well, thanks to the voice recognition technology. About the connectivity, this smart remote connects to your TV via Bluetooth and infrared simultaneously.
This smart remote from Samsung looks incredible, and it will revolutionize the way we use our TVs, however, no information regarding the price or release date is available.
