Remote sensing refers to any sensor system or detection method which operates at a distance removed from the object being sensed, as opposed to the sensor being attached to or integrated into the object. Examples include satellite imaging, machine vision systems, and any position tracking system that does not rely on markers upon the subject's body.

It had to happen sooner or later; a remote control with an inbuilt television screen for the truly lazy. At CES 2010, Samsung delivered on what is basically one such device. Designed to work with Samsung's 9000-series flatscreen TVs, the remote is essentially a mini pad computer, with a design not too dissimilar from an iPhone.
Here we have a remote control, used to control what was originally a human, now just a glorified appliance. If the idea of a remote being used to control a human seems preposterous, remember GVS.
