Sony headed to Singapore to give those folks a taste of what’s to come in their smart TV developments. It’s a new Google TV-enabled set-top box. Made of a glossy material, the box doesn’t look all that special itself (besides, it’s the software that counts). The remote definitely sucks us in, though, with its dual-sided nature.

Take a look at the photos above and below for a quick glimpse and keep your fingers crossed for a price and date soon. [CNet Asia via Android Central]
