Submission + - Sony finds new use for TV remotes (computerworld.com.au)

angry tapir writes: "If you thought your TV remote control was just for switching channels, think again. Sony has a new system that uses the remote control as a transfer device between a smartphone and television. The system, which makes use of NFC (near-field communications), was launched at CES in Las Vegas and is featured in Sony's Xperia Z cell phone and several Bravia TVs that were also announced the same day.

The technology means video and TV shows can be transferred to the TV without leaving the couch."
