A company doesn’t name itself Exceptional Innovation without a few nifty tricks up its sleeve. The latest is the Life|point, a high-definition touchpanel that allows users to surf through four simultaneous streams of video on one slick screen.
Apple addicts will surely love the point-and-slide navigation feature, a la the iPod touch and iPhone. Tap the screen to catch a full 16:9 view of content, pause live TV, or experience other aspects of the Lifevision system, which includes instant news, traffic and weather as well as access to whole-house lighting, climate, security, and other home systems.
Other features include stereo speakers, microphone, ambient light sensor, and an automatic touch-to-wake power saving mode. A variety of finishes are available in two sizes: 8.9 and 12.1 inches. Prices: $6,000 to $7,000.
