She seems to have an Nvisible Touch, yeah

Biometrics meets high customizability meets hands-free responses to create a better…TV remote. The Nvisible Touch can be set up according to each family member’s preferences; it then somehow senses who’s holding it and brings up their interface accordingly. (Question 1: Does this require hand use? We’re not just thinking accessibility here; it would be nice if our cats could turn on Full Mouse reruns by themselves.) It then senses the current user’s mood based on blood pressure, heart rate, and blood oxygen, and adjusts volume or even ambient lighting accordingly. (Question 2: Could this also be used to convey medical information in an emergency–and could it distinguish between a genuine heart attack or just a reaction to another Cubs loss?) Unclear when, if ever, this might get to market, but the concepts might have applicability elsewhere.
