Sensor-Laden Remote Control Knows Where You’re Pointing It

With its new Smart Remote, Sevenhugs presents a compelling use case for a universal remote. The gadget connects to a proprietary indoor positioning system that uses sensors to triangulate the exact location of the remote. What that means is when you point the remote at one of more than 25,000 different connected devices, it will know exactly what it’s looking at. Aim it at a lamp and it might pull up Hue’s app interface. Point it at your TV, and a Roku menu will appear. It’s this contextual awareness that could makes the incredibly fragmented experience of the smart home feel a little more simple, and a little more like home.
