Google TV: what will the UI look like?

Connected TV, OTT content, hybrid STBs: success is largely dependent on the UI. According to this article, the Xbox is going 'Minority Report'. And in this article, Yahoo! talks about the UI for Yahoo! TV.

In theory, it's a mixture of a lare range of building blocks:
  • Remote control, keyboard, mouse
  • (Multi-)touch screen
  • Camera, gesture-based control
  • Menus, search
  • Recommendation engines, social media
  • Personalisation
  • Widgets, widget channels, app stores
  • Accelerometer, gyroscope, GPS
  • Voice control
  • ??
Google TV is keeping all its options open, for the moment. Read more about is over here.
