Firstech

In the grail-like quest for the ultimate all-in-one device , all gadgets are possible targets for any manner of technological combinations--no matter how grotesquely unnatural . And it turns out that even the lowly car-key remote isn't out of bounds.

Firstech is coming out with a new "CompuStar Pro" remote that includes a "multi-color LCD, clock display with alarm, vibration and audible alerts, in addition to programmable time and temperature start at up to a 2-mile range and a parking meter timer," according to Gizmowatch. And with a 900MHz frequency, we wonder why they didn't go all the way and turn this into a phone as well.
