CES: The iPronto -  Ambient Intelligence

CES 2003 Innovations Award Winner

The Philips iPronto is a WiFi (802.11b) wireless intelligent remote that simplifies individual’s connectivity in the home The iPronto (MSRP: $1,699.99) controls devices out of its line of “sight” and gives it an “always on” Internet connection, so that family members can access their email or news from anywhere in the house. Philips considers the iPronto the new “dashboard” of the digital home, and notes that the Pronto family was designed for ease of use, personalization and device control, living up to the meaning of the Spanish word “pronto,” which translates to “fast” or “ready.” 

The iPronto builds on the core functionality of the Pronto as a universal remote, controlling home theater components, lighting, security cameras, home networks, climate control and other IR/RF/Ethernet home applications. Ultimately, tools like these will be even more engrained in our homes, and in addition to being activated by touch (like the Pronto products), they might be triggered by voice or movement.

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.
