Shortly after blessing us with a sneak peek at its BeoVision 8, Bang & Olufsen is now showcasing its interestingly-designed Beo 5 remote control. This device seeks to dictate your AV system and dabble in home automation, and touts a “square glass display with soft touch keys, an aluminum ball with tactile keys and a volume wheel,” and a simple charging base as well. Of course, it wouldn’t be a B&O unit without a few fanciful extras, such as the adaptive backlight in the LCD, macro support, and an “intelligent” interface that “presents just the relevant menus and controls” on the display. Unsurprisingly, there’s no word yet surrounding price or availability.
