Dish’s $30 remote control will listen when you talk
Soon we’ll all be mumbling to everything in our homes, calling up microwave popcorn and vacuum cleanings like befuddled Scotties in the Voyage Home. Until then Dish is giving us the option of chatting with our TV remotes with the new $30 Voice Remote. The squat remote has a button on the side that activates voice commands like “Watch ESPN,” “Record this,” or “Romantic Comedies featuring Harvey Keitel.” It also has a touchpad/numeric keypad built into the half-sized device. It has a touchpad-like interface above the play and fast forward buttons that allows for gesture-based commands as well.
