Windows 7: HTPC Remote Control

HTPC Remote Control

I don't think that what I have in mind exists, but I will ask regardless. I know that there are remote controls available, but none that I know of that will permit one to navigate through the media library at a distance from the monitor, because the links and thumbnails are too small to be seen at a distance, even back when my eyesight was sharp (I remember those days).

What I was imagining was a remote with a video screen of it's own, kind of like a cellphone has, that could display my library using Movie Collector, so that I could lie in bed, and browse the videos, without having to go to the monitor and keyboard. Is there such a lazy man's device around somewhere?
