We covered the Loop Pointer back when it first launched. Basically, this device from Hillcrest labs is a mouse that's designed to be held in the air and used to control a media box set-up from the comfort of your couch or lounge chair. It's a marriage between remote control and wireless mouse that, quite frankly, is one of the better product ideas I've heard of in months.

Tons of people these days have media boxes set up with their televisions. If you're going to spend thousands of dollars on a nice, giant LCD TV, you want it to have the optimum functionality it can have. By hooking it up to a computer you gain access to all of your movies, TV shows, and games without needing to switch out DVDs or plug in a console. The only bother with a media box is that the mouse and keyboard usually end up getting stuck somewhere to the side, forcing you to actually get up and move to use them.

With the Loop pointer, Hillcrest Labs has found a way to let us be truly lazy again. Now we can bask in our couches, wave a mouse around, and control our TV without anything that resembles exercise. It's no wonder they've been picked as a CES Innovations honoree. They may be aiding in the rampant expansion of diabetes and heart disease in this country, but they're also making sloth easier than ever before. That's worth at least one award.

If you want to join Hillcrest's exciting world of incredible laziness, you can pick a Loop pointer up from their website here. An end to all physical movement is just $77 away.
