End of the road for Ricavision?

Chris Lanier noted that the Ricavision remote had been delayed again but it looks worse than that. CEPro are reporting that the company has “essentially gone”. I was impressed the Sideshow Remote Ricavision showed off at CES in January but the remote has been hit by delay after delay (and lets just say I found the interview and meeting a little strange). I also thought the remote was to expensive for what it did. CEPro seem to think the company has gone out of business:

Ricavision, a great hope in the Media Center space, appears to be out of business.
Phones are disconnected at the Irvine, Calif. headquarters of the PC maker, which was one of the most promising purveyors of Windows SideShow technology.
A former employee who answered his cell phone indicated that Ricavision was essentially gone.

A number of beta testers that have paid $350 for the beta and I very much doubt they will see them. Checkout CEPro’s article for all the details
