The Huis remote is a universal control with an 4.7″ e-paper touchscreen that lets you customize the array of buttons the way you want. The Huis remote can be used to control anything from TVs and Blu-ray players to lights and air conditioners. You can customize the interface either on the remote itself or by using a PC app for greater control, and you can share and download configurations online. Sony says it decided on an e-paper display rather than an LCD screen or smartphone app because the technology’s lower power consumption and ability to display the virtual buttons all the time makes it more natural to use as a remote.
