Magic Wand Remote Control Changes Channels With a Flick of the Wrist

by Paul Strauss

If you’re tired of your boring old button-covered remote control, you might want to check out this fun new remote that looks (and works) like a magic wand.

The Wand remote control can convert up to 13 different hand gestures into infrared remote signals. Just wave the wand in the proper direction in the air, and it’ll issue commands to your IR-controlled gadgets. Of course with just 13 gestures, you can only program 13 commands from your remotes. Oh well, that should be enough for changing channels, adjusting volume, or switching between inputs on your TV, right?  It’s also got a nifty feedback system which provides “pulses” that confirm your gestures as well as let you know when the battery is running low.

Just imagine yourself as a wizard or warlock, donning one of those pointy wizard hats, and wearing your flowing silky wizard robe, wildly gesticulating  in the air with your magical wand – only this time, it’s to flip channels between The Real Housewives of Orange County and Dance Your Ass Off. Perfect.

Here’s some video of The Wand working its hocus pocus in case the diagram above didn’t get the point across…

And if you act now, as an added bonus, The Wand ships in this schmancy storage box so you won’t lose it. Now how much would you pay?

You can find The Wand over at UK gadget shop(pe) Firebox for £49.99 (appx. $80 USD). Currently, it’s only available in the UK part of their shop, and not in the U.S. side. Boo. Hopefully that’ll change soon. Maybe you can wave your real magic wand and make that happen. Abracadabra!
