  Text input : an Xbox console has a very poor way of entering text. Users have to pan left and right with a controller to select individual characters until a word is complete. With modern smart phones, users are use to typing on an on screen keyboard. This remote would contain a on screen keyboard allowing users to type on the remote and it would be mirrored on the television screen. (illustration provided by Brent Dietrich)

  Smart Glass 2.0 : The Xbox UI is made up of individual tiles that launch applications. Smart Glass 2.0 would bring these tiles to the media remote allowing users who are uncomfortable with an Xbox controller to access their favorite applications. Users could pin their favorite applications directly to their remote for quick access. Smart Glass 2.0 could also provide 3rd party applications a way to help users navigate their UI. For example, Netflix could create a quick menu on the remote helping users get to their favorite shows. (illustration provided by Brent Dietrich)
