B&O Beo5 remote

Luxury audio/video specialist Bang & Olufsen has announced the Beo5, a successor to its Beo4 multi-system remote. The new model is a significant departure; rather than rely on a conventional, button-laden "brick," the Beo5 is controlled mainly through a color touchscreen, with a button wheel providing access to common options such as volume and track control. The touchscreen tailors itself to each selected device, and furthermore offers tactile feedback, allowing users to "feel" where buttons are. The Beo5 should ship to retail later this fall at a price of $560; because it consumes more power than before, a table charger is included.
