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.
