Essentially the Smart TV can perform certain tasks when being spoken to such as Find comedies featuring Steve Martin or Watch Glee on DVR and even Post on Facebook that Im watching Iron Man. Users can talk directly into the Magic Remote to control the TV.
In addition to the voice-recognition technology the Magic Remote is also equipped with motion-gesture detection that allows the TV to be controlled using certain hand and arm gestures.
