Turning the real world virtual

That Samsung monster shown in slide 6 would take the place of the picture window in my living room.  I'd grab one of the HD cameras shown in slide one and put it on the outside of the house.  When not actively watching a show, the Samsung behemoth would be my picture window.

Tongue in cheek, to be sure, but boy, wouldn't it be nice to have the problem of figuring out where to put that behemoth?

I have a Samsung Smart TV and use a wireless keyboard and mouse with the TV.  Most of the time I use the regular remote, but when I go online or use the applications I use the mouse and keyboard.

Junko, I was struck by the first few slides in your presentation that talked about the UI for smart TVs.  We got one not long ago, and Miracast is correct.  The UI on the TV is somewhat clunky with the standard remote.  Being able to use a smart phone, or even a PC with Ethernet or Bluetooth, would be a great improvement.  This would especially be an improvement in managing the settings on the TV.  There are lots.

Great idea.  Why spend 5 cents a foot for wire when you can invest in a complete set of radio transmitters and receivers.  You not only succeed in cluttering the ether with more junk, but you have a good chnce of picking up interference from others who have made the same choice.
