Presentation remote delivers vibrating countdowns, more

Presenting is hard. This palm-sized Logitech Professional Presenter R800 makes it easier, and brings along unusual features for a wireless presenting device. Besides having an LCD display showing you a handy countdown timer indicating how much time is left in your presentation, it vibrates when you have five, two, and zero minutes left. No more furtive glances at that watch, cell phone, or clock on the wall.

Of course, this $100 remote aims to please with the usual presentation accoutrements, such as a green laser pointer and transport controls, letting you advance PowerPoint slides from 100 feet away. And given its elongated, streamlined shape and vibration capabilities, maybe some of our more creative readers can imagine other possible uses of the R800 for a lonely road warrior, far from home.
