Here's the offical site: http://www.galaxymetalgear.com/Tvisto.htm
Looks like it's designed to be a standalone player, where you have to
connect it to your computer and download content onto it. Then you can
carry it to your tv to play back your content. Basically it's a video
ipod, without the screen and a (possibily) larger hard drive.
Maybe people would like to load it up with their favorite media and
take it grandma's house...?
