Japanese company KDDI has developed the Social Remote Control.
Designed as an android application, it turns your phone into a social media remote that can display audience ratings for TV programmes using Twitter.
The best thing about the app is its ability to scour Twitter for information about what is on, what is worth watching and who is doing the watching. A few clicks and the content is queued up on your TV. KDDI makes finding, browsing and selecting TV content via the web extremely easy.
