Logitech comes up with new Harmony Touch universal remote
Popular peripherals maker Logitech has announced a new Harmony Touch universal remote control – but this time with a built-in touch screen!
The new Harmony Touch remote is the successor to the Harmony One and arrives with a 2.4-inch touch screen that will bring touch gestures right into your living room. Just like on many smartphone or tablet remote apps, users can swipe left and right on the touchscreen to trigger rewind/fast forward controls and can tap the screen for play/pause. The gestures are also programmable to fit a user’s needs
The remote control supports up to 50 channels that can be added via an easy-to-navigate icon-based interface. After an initial online setup, the Harmony Touch will automatically program TV channels based on a user’s location and TV service provider. Best of all: the Harmony remote works with 225 000 devices from 5 000 different brands and can control 15 different devices. Moreover the Logitech Harmony Touch is fully compatible with the Xbox 360.
The Logitech Harmony Touch is available now at various retailers and online for 249.99 USD.
