Universal Remote Looks Like 'Harry Potter' Wand

Role-playing geeks and Renaissance-faire nerds are often equipped with a variety of fantastical weapons and costumes. Rarely, though, do their dork devices have any modern application. To make a formerly mythical armament a modern reality, the wanna-be wizards at the Wand Company have engineered the universal Kymera Magic Wand remote control.

The vibrating television wand incorporates accelerometer technology similar to that of Nintendo Wii remotes, allowing users to change channels, control volume, and even fast-forward and rewind using circular, up-and-down, and back-and-forth gestures. There are a total of 13 programmable commands.

The wand, which costs around $80 and will begin shipping October 1st, will definitely excite 'Harry Potter' fanatics. Let's just hope those enchanted nerds won't find other, more dubious functions for this magical, pulsating rod. [From: The Wand Company, via New Launches]
