Let’s face it, the average overly enthusiastic Star Wars fan is
probably more at home in front of his or her favorite trilogy than
they are on the slopes. So what to do when one’s friends head out for
a delightful day on the mountain? Pack in your Milennium Falcon sled
and let the good times roll. Sledding requires almost no physical
coordination beyond that which can be developed via video games.

Philips Prestigo SRT9320 universal remote control is nothing short of beautiful. At the top end is a 2.8-inch color touchscreen with all your channels, logos and all. On the bottom end is a variety of hard keys that control every function. The SRT9320 is fully programmable without connecting to a PC–it comes with a USB connect for firmware updates–though CNET reports its much easier to use the PC for “multidevice macros”.

Available in the first quarter of 2009, Philips Prestigo SRT9320 will set you back $249.
