Kameleon Gen 3 Remote
Although Logitech is often seen as the forerunner in universal remotes with its Harmony line, One For All has announced an alternative that can be more easily justified for most home theaters. The Kameleon Generation 3 remote controls many common devices, including DVD players, home lighting systems, and satellite receivers -- but rather than use a small and expensive LCD, the Generation 3 uses a dynamic display that covers virtually the entire front face and selectively highlights the number pad or other buttons and information depending on which device is being controlled. The remote can also combine its functions in a single action, such as turning down lights when playing a DVD. Pricing in the UK will begin at £70 ($130 US), making it one of the least expensive universal remotes available. Availability in the UK or for North America has not yet been established.
