Kylo, The Web Browser For Television

[DEMO Spring 2010] Today at DEMO, Hillcrest Labs launched Kylo, its web browser that will leverage the Loop pointer, Hillcrest Labs in-air mouse, named a CES 2010 Innovation Award Honoree. The Hillcrest’s Freespace in-air pointing and motion-control technology is also used in the super stylish Logitech MX Air Rechargeable Cordless Mouse that I personallyuse to browse the web on my TV. Launching TV browser after having released a remote or mouse seems to be trendy this year at DEMO, the GlideTV team has also launched a similar product at the show.
