ROCKLEIGH, N.J. – Crestron unveiled a waterproof remote control that can be used in hot tubs or hospitals.

The disc-shaped, aptly named UFO waterproof remote can float and is geared toward outdoor environments, such as use around pools, hot tubs or yachts. It measures 1.3 by 5.1 inches and weighs 9 ounces.

Alternatively, the remote can be used in hospitals and operating rooms since it can also be submerged in sanitizing liquid. The UFO is completely submersible at depths up to 10 feet, according to the company.

TWICE: What is more important to your products’ success — sound performance or style?

Bruce Borenstein, AfterShokz: For us, it’s both. It’s just as important for our headphones to be lightweight, ergonomic and sleek-styled, as it is that they deliver sound that will exceed consumers’ expectations.

Matt Engstrom, Shure: At Shure, sound always comes first — styling comes later.
