Amulet Devices announced its 2nd Generation Voice-enabled Amulet Remote at CES, specifically designed for Windows 7. This should give you the ability to speak certain command to you remote to control your PC, such playing a music track by artist, album or song title, watching a movie or recorded TV show by saying its name, selecting a slideshow by naming the photo collection. Viewing a TV channel by saying the name of the channel, skipping forward to a specific point within a movie, scheduling a TV recording by saying the channel name and time. This surely will make the remote a much lazier device to use.

CEO Garry McMullan said, “CES is the most important show we attend each year, and we can’t wait to let visitors get some hands on experience with our new model. I know they’ll be amazed.”
