Everyone wants to be king of their castle, but wouldn’t it be a lot cooler if you were the wizard? You know I’m right. While you may call out “expecto patronum” from time to time in your house, chances are nothing happens. Well now you can become the Harry Potter of your living room with your very own magic wand remote control.
Ah yes. The folks at Kymera have created the ultimate remote control in the shape of a magic wand. That joyous shout you just heard was the sound of geeks everywhere rejoicing.
The crazy part about this is the wand actually uses gestures to perform commands. Spinning the wand clockwise will change the channels. Or you can program it to play or pause your program by brandishing (yes, brandishing) it up and down.
How can it do all this? Through magic of course! Silly muggle. Ok, it actually connects with a regular remote control to sync it with your electronics, but the Magic Wand Remote can be used for TVs, DVRs, DVD players and a number of other home electronics.
I’d personally like it to work with my coffee maker, but that’s for another day.
