Acer Aspire Z5600 all-in-one PC

Aspire Z5600

Acer demonstrated its all-in-one PC Z5600 on the Computex Taipei 2009. It’s equiped with 23-inch LCD display supported multi-touch interface and HD resolution. The Z5600 is powered by Intel Core 2 Duo processor and contains DDR3 memory, 3.5″ SATA-II HDD, hybrid TV tuner card, gigabit Ethernet, a/b/g/n WiFi adapter, HD webcam and HD speakers.

As I see the Acer Aspire Z5600 can be used as control panel for home automation system like LinuxMCE or you may combine it with media client.

Hi-tech shower

If you rich and successful and you like to take a shower the Aquagate is what do you need. Originally tt’s free-standing shower cabin. But guys from Villeroy & Boch add here a bit high tech. A built-in controller with touch screen allows to configure and save shower environment, listen MP3 and more. The price is not listed but it should be really expensive!


LCD Touch Screen 16 in 1 Universal Remote Control

Universal Remote Control Once I wrote about cool remote control with LCD touch screen instead of ordinary buttons. That remote controls up to 8 AV devices. LCD Touch Screen 16 in 1 Universal Remote Control can control up to 16 devices: TV, Satellites, Cable TV, VCR, DVD, Tape, Hi Fi’s, CD Players, Radios, MP3 Players, Amplifiers, Digital Recorders and other Audio devices. The remote offers 48 buttons/commands for each device and allows to create 60 macro commands.

The remote comes pre-programmed for easy use. If I understand clearly it can be connected to the PC via USB(?) to update existing and download new IR codes.

The price is very modest. It’s just US$61.24. So, if you have a lot AV devices and want to control them from one remote this is your choice!
