All-in-one 'I-TV' from Italy

It sounds too good to be true, but we can hope

Who says the PC-TV is dead? A decade ago, a lot of bets were placed (and lost) on the convergence of television and the computer as a single uber-device for the home. But the concept is alive and kicking in, of all places, Italy.

Coolest-Gadgets says a company called Mc Person has unveiled an "all-in-one" system that will offer "television, radio, Internet, high-definition video, house automation, health monitoring and more." The "I-TV" concept, as it is known, works wirelessly and is controlled through a single remote.

It sounds too good to be true, unless the whole package is prohibitively expensive. But we certainly hope that the consolidation trend is revived, because we're tired of needing eight or nine remotes just to watch TV.
