Universal remote concept reminds us of the all-in-one gadget dream

What if you could control everything in your home with a little handheld gadget? That's what this universal remote by David Chacon got us thinking about, with its roomy screen — a nerve center right in your pocket.

Called the HP Thync, the device would be flash capable so it could display anything from channel listings to more elaborate menus. With a touchscreen, the right frequencies and support from outside companies, the remote would allow you to change your television's volume to turning on the oven or dimming the lights — and companies could create custom graphic user interfaces for a product, too.

Check out the gallery below for more views of the HP Thync.




CORRECTION: The remote is actually known as the HP Thync, as David Chacon noted in the comments below. Thanks, David!
