The Bridge Controller Has a Keyboard and Controls Just About Anything

I really hate having to type in letters and numbers on the things attached to my TV using a normal remote. If you have an Xbox or set-top box that does Netflix, having to type in those search letters can take forever with a normal remote. A new remote is on Kickstarter trying to raise to the money to come to the real world.

The new remote is called the Bridge and it is made to be universal with support for just about anything in your home. The PS3 won't be in that mix since it uses Bluetooth. The Bridge remote looks like a PS3 remote to me with shoulder buttons and an analog stick. It has a QWERTY keyboard that looks like a Blackberry.

The Bridge can support just about everything in your entertainment center and can pair to your PC or to your smartphone too. The people behind the Bridge are trying to raise $50,000 to make the remote and so far, they have about $4,000 with 47 more days to meet their goal.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
