AMEX unveils wireless USB remote, pointer, touchpad

AMEX USB remote

AMEX Digital recently announced a multi-featured device, the RM-mp1, capable of acting as a computer's remote control, laser pointer and mouse touchpad. The ultra-wideband Wireless USB device is meant to act as an all-in-one presentation aid, allowing users to control slide shows originating from a PC, then pointing out any specifics with the integrated laser pointer. Its dedicated media buttons allow it to be used for personal, home-entertainment purposes as well.

Connecting the 2.4GHz remote to a PC running a Windows 98, ME, 2000, XP or Vista operating system is accomplished via its Wireless USB connection. Computers without it built in communicate with the remote via the included Wireless USB receiver. The remote, available in either black or white, is made for transparent use with Windows MediaCenter, though its touchpad and mouse buttons will allow it to control other PC functions as well.

A release date has not been revealed, while pricing is likely determined by Japan's open price system.
