Sony is set to release a new line of waterproof remotes next month.
Bad news: Japan-only, at least for now.
Good news: You probably don't need a waterproof remote.

well, i do wonder how many remotes have died over the years thanks to exposure to some liquid or other from either a kid or clumsy adult…
probably don’t need this??? no, i do need this, to adjust the mood music while hanging out with my special lady in my jacuzzi.
Nothing makes a lady feel more special than when a dude is fiddling with a remote when he should be pouring her champagne.
wait, what? why do they have a 10, 11, and 12 button, but no 0?
Finally, now I can run my grody remotes through the dishwasher!
Has Sony had the same dim-witted remote control designer to the last 20 years? Who, in 2009, designes a remote control with all of the buttons exactly the same size and arranged in a perfect grid?
What a usability nightmare. Sure I can use it in the jacuzzi, but heaven help me if I try to use it in the dark.
I think this is great for the hotel industry, PLEASE soak my remote in sanitizer before my stay, thanks.
When I saw the buttons on this remote, I obsessively had to know what they do. I found a manual for a similar model with the exact same button layout: Sony RM-PZ1SD. After using online translation tools and search, the top 9 buttons seem to be:
audio switch, display, power.
analog, digital, input.
BS, CS, 10-key.
(BS = broadcast satellite, CS = communications satellite.)
Guy #4: The 10 button is also the 0 button. (It actually says “10/0″ on it.)
Anonymous #6: The top-left button (“audio switch”?), the 5 button, and the CH+ button have little raised dots on them so you can feel where they are.
that’s neat, only if I got a TV in my bathroom, hot tub and movie anyone? can they launch a water proof tv too??
this is perfect.
last month I accidentally put my remote through the washing mashing. (I still don’t know how I managed that one)
I could use it, I’m into water sports porn.
(Not really, I just had to suggest a use)
