The Kameleon remote lights up when you touch it. Big whoop. That is, until you REALLY touch it. The Kameleon remote looks like a regular television remote with a big empty blue screen on the front. But when you touch the screen, your controls come up. The remote features multiple modes such as CD Player, VCR, TV, etc., so you can customize which buttons appear with each setting. It's an excellent and easy-to-use device for organizing your set-top boxes and players. But the fading screen can get on your nerves a bit after awhile. Overall, I could see my grandmother using this to help her out with all her players and helping me not reach 4 feet for my DVD player's remote.
