This magic wand TV remote is the type of gift that you’ll want to buy for yourself at first, and only after you’ve had your fun, you’ll consider buying one for your equally nerdy friend. There’s no greater pleasure than to zap through programs with a simple yet firm gesture and well-directed spell that will change the channel for you faster than you can say expel Aramis. It’s more than obvious that this magic TV remote is the absolute best gift for the Harry Potter loving friend we all have.
It is a TV role control with 13 gestures, and she does feel like a wizard with this what’s really cool about this is it’s just kind of like your phone it’s got an accelerometer, a gyroscope, all those kind of sensors inside it so it can actually tell the gestures you’re making so if you turn it or flick it or swish it that will send out just like you were pushing buttons a TV on TV off those kinds of things, but I did promise you how to feel like a home cake wizard. So I couldn’t get Siri to do it today, but there is an Easter Egg that if you name your scenes Lumos sometimes Siri will actually respond to you, hey, you’re a wizard, which is kind of cool. So if you look at this, it is plastic it not wooden right, but it does have a really nice finish. It’s got that little green accent on the end of the wand here right that’s pretty cool. It feels not heavy, but it feels solid. It feels like it’s not something that we’re going to break, you know easily, which is nice and again. The other thing here that I want to show you which is I was like wow um front of the Harry Potter fans is totally reminded me of the marauders map the instructions are all kind of hot hand-drawn and it is definitely in the shape of kind of like a treasure map that teaches you how to do the 13 separate gestures and yes there are 13 so you can duplicate 13 of the different buttons of your existing TV remote with this wand now I’m not sure how many those I’m actually gonna use frankly I can only think of three that I need I don’t have cable anymore so I need volume up and volume down I need to be able to turn the TV on and off so I’m hoping that I’m gonna be able to learn the basic magic and get enough to get those three and so I could have a little bit of trouble finding even the batteries and that is because this thing is really put together solidly so you’re just gonna twist off that little the two silver and the jeweled end there and you’ll find that inside here there is first off a little battery cap to prevent it from losing battery when it’s in transportation so we’re gonna take that off so we can power the wand up and you can see here we’ve got a couple of triple-a batteries in here that are gonna power our wand so I haven’t looked through the instructions a little bit there are a few different easy gestures or you can just roll it kind of just like you have a volume knob on a traditional stereo you’ve got flicks up and down you’ve got some more advanced tapping kind of things going on I’m gonna save you guys the trouble of watching me try to figure this thing out because it does take a little bit of getting used to I’m not going to to lie about that however I may even inform you that it’s a whole lot of fun and I had a blast.
