A touch screen is a really bad idea for a remote. It's convenient for the maker to be able to add or change the functionality with software updates, but very hard to use when you can't feel the buttons under your fingers.

I had a projector with a touch panel on its case. To adjust settings, I had to tap virtual direction keys on a flat glass surface, while looking at the menu on the wall, 2 meters away.

Also, it was the reason why I got rid of my Chromecast.

Geez, you can get a really nice universal remote that does almost all of this for a quarter of the price.

This is a better option.
