Snakebyte Expands it's Playstation Offerings With Programmable Remote

One of our favorite add-on's from last year has to have been the Wii Balance Board with built in Digital Scale from snakebyte. It was the first third party balance board that we've seen and was a really innovative product that actually had a purpose when not playing games!

Much like the board, snakebyte's newest- a Bluetooth remote for the Playstation 3 -has some extras built in as well.

Notice that big screen at the top? Time and room temp.

The remote also features IR compatibility, not just Bluetooth. So you'll be able to remotely control up to 6 other IR devices in addition to your PS3.
