In theory this an amazing idea. The length of time they will last to remote operation of. However comma how often do you really need to dim a light? I mean really?
Novelty aspect is amazing. Much like Siri. Cool at first. Not used after a few weeks.

And they'll sell a zillion of them because they're in the Apple store.

I use this as an example daily.
"your iPhone will do almost everything now. Siri will even date you. Only thing it doesn't do is dispense tooth paste, but wait for next years model. It just might by then. "

I'm all for home automation. My A/V network is pretty extensive. However, I've never had any desire to set this kind of thing up. I guess I'm just not that into light.
