- Our future TVs will not be controlled through touch, or by talking, or by gestures in the air. The controls will be in the remote control tablet. Today's TV remote is controlled by micro-gestures, a tiny press of the channel button. It makes no sense to replace that with grand gestures, arm waving , etc., Good point.
- The remote control is an iPad or any touch screen tablet. The interface offers easy, slider based controls, and it also doubles as the 'second screen' allowing web browsing, and for novel forms of TV show interactions.
- The interface NDS has developed runs on Chrome. Even though Google is becoming a competitor in this space, the relationship is defined as 'co-opetition' and the two companies have exchanged some TV related technologies.
