Raise your hand if you keep losing your remotes. No matter how big and bulky they are, no matter how nice a home theatre you have…remote controls keep on disappearing, leaving us searching wildly and blaming the world for our pain and suffering. (Some claim that remotes warp into an alien dimension and get sucked into the vortex of a blackhole.) The Magic Wand Remote Control won’t get those remotes back and might even follow the other remotes into the blackhole. However, when you have the magic wand in your hand, you’ll look and feel like a powerful magician.
Be the Gandolf of your HDTV and power it on with an assertive move of the wrist. Be the maestro of your sound system and rotate the wand clockwise to crescendo epic fight scenes. The wand basically turns you into a domestic
Harry Potter Voldemort, because you can teach it to control other electronics in the house; fireplaces, iPod docks, projectors, DVD players, ceiling fans, robots…the list goes on and on.
The wand does seem magical but like all magic props, it’s just an illusion; a universal remote in disguise powered by 2 AAA batteries and a “motion-sensing accelerometer.”
If you’re thinking of getting a gift for your geek friend (or geek Dad) who already has just about everything, this wand would score major points. It comes in a posh silk-lined box, which will make the wand think twice about warping elsewhere.
