Gyration Ultra R4000

Not to outdone by yesterday's launch of the MX Air, Gyration has unveiled its Ultra R4000 remote. While immediately useful as hybrid IR/RF universal remote for stereos, TVs, and Windows Media Center PCs, the large remote doubles as a mouse and direct music browser for Windows as a whole. Moving the remote itself steers the onscreen pointer and responds to traditional left- and right-clicks, while an LCD and dedicated navigation buttons will let PC users select from and play tracks from a PC even when the TV is switched off.

Shortcuts to common Media Center tasks as well as browsing and traditional controls are also on tap. The Ultra R4000's announcement has been made as part of an early preview and is not expected to ship until the fall, Gyration says. The price is also undetermined and should be set closer to the final release date.
