I understand that this is not the same as my example, but if I can hold two remote sized devices in y hands at once, then most anyone else could too. The product is nice and a cool concept, but its too much. Kids in Africa walk 10 miles for dirty water and some people can't even hold two remotes. Something is wrong with that picture. Good luck to them on their kickstarter though.
You do realise that the very concept of a remote control is 'laziness' in itself, I once had an old TV where you had to go to the unit itself because it didn't have a remote control.
People have always sought to make lives more convenient, that's one reason why the remote was invented in the first place and personally, while I wouldn't buy one, a device like this would be convenient for me as I only ever use my TV remote for power, source and volume (it would also help prevent wear and tear on said remote).
So before you use 'first world problems' in a post again, look around you and think because chances are you've spent allot of money on things which would have helped those people for what could be considered 'laziness'.
