Surely this is just a scam to take money off gullible investors?
Which begs the question why can't I think of ideas like this?
It's not the credible-for-cretins idea's that are the problem, it's gullible but rich friends you need. I mean anyway can be convinced you're in a position to sell a bridge, but what's the point if they don't have any money to buy it with? All the rich people I know are either a) just not that dumb or b) got rich by being tight and wouldn't part with cash for anything.
"why can't I think of ideas like this?"
Because you don't drink varnish.
How many people thought of something similar/identical to the Juicero before writing it off as absolutely ridiculous and going no further?
Fools the lot of them!
"Because you don't drink varnish."
Bollocks thats another thing I got wrong. FFS.

It's backed by Stephen Fry so from a technical stand point it must be rock solid like jelly.
Apparently the controller connects to a satellite which beams it back to the TV and onto the internet...or something like that.
From the picture, I think his high holiness, the all knowledgeable is thinking about Michael Gove....
Why does a digital music service need more than an app on a phone? Even my ancient E65 had a big enough screen for music browsing on storage or Internet.
But then I can't quite see the value of a "Gem" or "Chromecast". If I need a big screen, the phone, laptop can connect via HDMI.
One Tablet needs some sort of wireless gizmo because it's a stupid one, the other can use HDMI.
You can even buy an MP3 player the size of that remote!

IOW Telling a very good story and turning people with a lot of cash but little knowledge into people with rather more knowledge, and rather less cash.
The fail is strong in this one.

They've seriously missed a trick here.
Shouldn't the "sex aid" style remote come (fnarr fnarr) in a selection of rainbow colours?
Re: Sex Aid
You're right. The first thing I thought when I saw Fry holding it in that suggestive manner was that it looked suspiciously like a vibrator. And, according to El Reg, it's not a very good concept or implementation in the first place. Also, most of us have a low opinion of Fry. So El Reg missed a great opportunity for a photo caption...
