Bang & Olufsen have launched a new remote control called the Beo5 that has a very strange design. The device has a square LCD screen attached to a round module that has buttons for controlling functions of your home theater.

The large color LCD screen is touch sensitive and uses chemically hardened glass. The cool part about the touch-sensitive screen used here is that it attempts to give tactile feedback that most touch screen devices lack.

This is accomplished by Touch-and-Go technology that uses sensi-touch to detect the button and soft-touch that actually activates the button. The internal rechargeable battery is good for 10-12 days of use per charge. The MSRP for the remote is $560 and it should be available in the Fall. Bang & Olufsen say the remote will be programmed by the home theater retailer where it is purchased.
