Welcome to a whole new level of geekdom: the magic wand remote control. Yes, you can now channel your inner witch or wizard while you adjust the volume, pause the DVD, or turn on the lights (forget that 'clap on, clap off' crap). Various "spellcasting" gestures (e.g., flicking the wand) actually control your electronics, thus rendering the clunky, boring remotes you've amassed useless. Sadly, it runs on batteries rather than unicorn hair or phoenix feathers. Oh well--can't have them all.
You can get your own (and watch a short video of it in action) here.
