The Amulet Remote is the "first voice-enabled remote control" designed specifically for Vista Media Center. Those of you who don't use Vista won't benefit from it, but it's still an interesting product that offers a different take on remotely controlling your media PC. It allows consumers to record and watch TV, listen to their favorite music, and view DVDs, videos and photos – all using simple voice commands. The remote works with any Vista Media Center system, and replaces the standard media center remote control.

If it's backlit and learning, there's potential. If it's just for media center and won't control my receiver, Blu-ray player, etc., then it's not worth as much since I would just program it to another universal remote.
Seriously, this is a good thing for visually impaired people even though most are perfectly capable (as are sighted people) of learning keys on standard remotes by touch.
