Ricavision SideShow remotesHow much would you be willing to pay for an attractive remote control that lets you interact with your media center PC even when your monitor or TV set is turned off? If you said upward of $250, have I got the remote control for you.

Sure, you can pick up a low end PC for less these days, but... yeah, I've got no but. That's just a lot of money any way you slice it. Still, if you've got $274 burning a hole in your pocket, you can preorder Ricavision's new VAVE100 SideShow remote control.

What makes the VAVE100 so special?
  • Universal learning remote control capable of controlling over 20 different devices from 50 feet away via IR
  • BlueTooth enabled with support for audio streaming
  • 2.4 inch 240 x 320 pixel LCD display
  • Windows Media Center support
  • SideShow support (meaning you can use it as a secondary display for a Vista PC
The VAVE100 won't actually be available until late February. Ricavision is also announcing the VAVE50 remote control with support for Windows Vista Media Center, but no SideShow features. It's not clear yet how much the VAVE50 will cost or when it will be available for purchase.
