Kinect-like controllers come to Smart TVs

Does this year’s CES mark the beginning of the end for the traditional TV remote? It is hard to say for sure of course but there certainly does seem to be a real push from TV manufacturers to move away from the traditional remote or offer additional ways for users to interact with their TVs. So far I have come across four different ways in which manufacturers are developing new methods of user interaction with the TV that in the long term at least will either make an actual physical product a thing of the past or unrecognizable.
