Hillcrest Loop Remote: Vaporware?

I stumbled upon the Hillcrest Loop remote control deep in the bowels of South Hall, sitting encased in glass in a sparse booth. I asked for a hands-on and was shut down, and they had no info on when this thing will see the light of day. Pretty fishy. What gives, Hillcrest?

Our previous hands-on with this made it seem pretty robust, but their display here just screamed vaporware. Here's hoping that's not the case.
