Wind-Up Remote Control
With the steadily growing stream of eco-friendly gadgets, it was only a matter of time before the good ol’ wind-up mechanism should find its way into the remote controls.
Wind Up Remote Control not only lets you survey and control your multimedia empire from the sofa armed with just one for all remote controls, this handy device is a completely battery free remote control so there are no batteries to replace, ever! Yes, all you have to do is wind up a built-in generator using the easy-to-use dial on the wind up remote control – 30 full turns is enough to provide a full charge, which should last you about a week.
It’s quick, easy and works with a huge variety of devices on hundreds of brands, including Samsung, Sony, Phillips, Panasonic – use remote codes to synch everything to your universal remote.
The Wind-Up Remote Control is available from Gizoo for £19.95 (about $39 USD).
