These two products from Logitech caught my eye. The first is a universal remote designed to match your Xbox 360. I'm not really up on the latest and greatest for remotes but the buttons look well mapped out, easy to read, and the aesthetic details are quite nice. The grey underbelly has a thin, rubberized finish. Mmmm, grippy.
The headphones immediately reminded me of those Nike Presto watches from a couple years ago. The wraparound band is translucent polycarbonate and the unusually shaped earphones look pretty comfortable. Word through the grapevine is that the headphones were designed by Ziba. Not sure about the remote. Nice work.
(ed. The remote was designed by Designpartners in Ireland. Lead was Mat Bates. -Thanks Andrew!)
