Slingmedia is offering consumers the chance to control their Slingbox with dedicated touchscreen controller, the Sling Touch Control 100, and we went hands-on with it at CES to grab pics.
According to SlingMedia, it will allow users to "interact with and controls SlingGuide-enabled DVRs as well as most line-of-sight controlled audio-visual devices", via its 4.3-inch, capacitive touch-screen LCD display with 272 x 480 resolution.
The Sling Touch Control 100 communicates with HD DVRs and other SlingGuide-enabled devices via IP over a home 802.11 network and communicates with non-IP devices via IR-based control.
From our quick fondle, we can tell you that screen is bright, and the whole device is pretty thin.
No word on pricing or availability.
