Disappointingly, while I’m convinced that Bang & Olufsen’s Beo6 remote was inspired by those fat-bottomoed Weebles children’s toys that always remain standing, I’m pretty sure it doesn’t share the same tip-proof qualities. In fact I’m not even sure what the company was thinking when they created this remote which features a touchscreen LCD display perched atop an aluminum ball with its own complement of hardware buttons, including a scrolling volume wheel. It’s of course designed to play nice with Bang & Olufsen’s own AV gear including wifi support, the ability create custom macros and everything else you’d expect from a high-end remote. And as for pricing, it’s not flaunted on their website but you can assume it’s expensive enough to keep Bang & Olufsen fans feeling elite.
