RCA voice-activated remote lets you talk to the hand

Do know someone who has a hard time working even the simplest remote control? Well, salvation could be at hand, in the form of RCA's new RCRV06G. This new universal remote can control up to six components, with up to 25 of the most common functions operating by either voice command or the old-fashioned buttons. Of course all of this would be some kind of cruel joke if it was nearly impossible to do the initial setup, but luckily voice commanded setup is also part of the deal.

I just wonder whether your whole system will go dead if someone yells, "switch the power off" in some TV show or movie.

No word on when this baby will be in the stores, but retail will be about $40.
