One might be tempted to snicker, but this could be interesting, especially if your Mac and iPod are set up in a den:

Zicplay, a leading manufacturer of audio and video products within the consumer electronics market, unveils today EWOO(TM), a groundbreaking new remote control device dedicated to iPod(TM) users. At last, iPod(TM) and iTunes(TM) users will be able to fully control their music and video libraries around their home using the EWOO(TM) remote control.

The EWOO(TM) is supplied with a dock for the iPod(TM), and a USB adapter to control and browse iTunes(TM) on the computer. On EWOO’s color TFT screen users can explore their libraries as intuitively as with the iPod or with iTunes.

Connect the EWOO(TM) dock to your audio-video equipment and take advantage of the 2.4GHz technology to move around within a radius of 100ft (30 meters) while easily accessing all your music. You can now browse your music while comfortably seated in your sofa.

Launching in early February, the EWOO(TM) will be iTunes(TM) ready (Apple(TM)’s leading multimedia software) thanks to an optional USB adaptor connected to your PC or Mac to run and control iTunes(TM) through the remote control.

… The EWOO(TM) remote control integrates a Lithium Polymere battery that provides 10 days power and has a record breaking low weight of 60 grams. In addition, the dock offers every connection audio fans demand from a Hi-Fi product: optical, analog, and S-video output. It also recharges the iPod(TM) whilst docked onto.

Alexandre Colot, CTO, Zicplay, adds: “With the EWOO(TM), Zicplay opens new horizons for the multimedia realm and intends to introduce soon further new products in line with this device. We are already working on versions that will be compliant with other MP3 players. We would like to place particular emphasis on the audio qualities of Zicplay products and on the GUI.”

The EWOO(TM) will be available at $129 (129 euro) during the first half of February 2007 in the United States and Europe.
