The Design of a Media Center Remote with Voice!

Mon, August 23, 2010 by

The design of our Voice Remote was one of the major steps that we had to accomplish to get to market. We had the Media Center Plugin software for a while, we had the Remote Control internal electronics for a while. These were needed first, to demonstrate the idea. But to make it real we needed a form. A shape to contain the magic. This was one of the most interesting aspects of the project for me. I have previously been involved in high volume consumer devices, but not something so tactile.

We have just received stocks of the final pieces in the manufacturing puzzle. To be a Microsoft Certified Media Center Remote Control, you have to special order the specific Green Button with the Windows logo. These are only available from certain vendors. We recently got the green light for the remote control and now we have our green buttons. This means we are Microsoft approved accessory for use with Vista and Window 7 Media Center.
