Evaluation

It attempts to solve the complexity of navigating through multi-functions. It successfully replaces the numerous mechanical buttons laid out on conventional TV remote controls with a touch panel and a compatible UI. It demonstrates the up-and-coming direction of a new remote control system suitable for the smart TV era.
