Now here's an interesting concept device: a gel remote control that lies limp on your coffee table. Until you approach it, that is.
Constructed of a soft, flesh-like gel, the remote appears cold when off. Once turned on, however, it seems to come to life. A soft light emanates somewhere from within as the center of the device begins to slowly rise and fall, mimicking the tranquil motions of breath. Left undisturbed, the remote will slumber peacefully. But should a human hand approach, sensors inside alert it to the imminent touch. It stops breathing, grows rigid - the light from within is extinguished.Well, I will say that I'm intrigued, but not intrigued enough to want to own one of these things.
