Move over, multi-buttoned universal remote--Remotion is the latest in channel-changing technology. The sleek device operates by motion-sensors, much like a Nintendo Wii controller. Couch potatoes can shake the stick vertically to adjust volume, and horizontally to surf the channels. 

In a world that is becoming increasingly overwhelmed with buttons and doo-dads, the simplicity of this strange looking creature is rather appealing. For those of us who enjoy the luxuries of Digital Video Recording, however, we’re not sure that Remotion can serve all of our viewing needs.
