Red Dot award winner Ruwido has rolled out an update of its popular 'tau' remote control that includes a capacitive tough screen designed to make navigating ponderous programming guides a little easier.
Ruwido Austria said the tau's touch cursor enables the user to navigate on-screen menus, change channel and adjust volume simply by swiping a finger across the surface of the device. LED lights provide visual feedback for accurate use.
The new model also features a USB connection that can be used to recharge the integrated battery and enables future software and database upgrades to be downloaded to the device.
tau's smooth glass-like appearance, in combination with an aluminium side-frame, contributed to the device being awarded the Red Dot design award earlier this month.
