Change TV Channels, Play DVDs, Adjust Volume with Wizard-like Ease
The Magic Wand Remote Control, a device that adds a wizardly flourish to home entertainment, is a motion-sensing accelerometer that translates the hand's nuance movements into commands from a remote control. Simply point the wand and the device's remote at each other and push the function on the remote the wand is to “learn.” For example, pressing “up volume” on a remote could be linked to the wand's up/down gesture, while changing channels could be linked to the wand's clock/counterclockwise gesture.
Specific motions of the hand, such as quick taps to pause/play a DVD, forward/backward thrusts, and dramatic sweeps can be matched to nearly any existing remote's functions.
The 13-inch long wand is compatible with most home electronics that use remote controls, including televisions, DVD players, DVR players, ceiling fans and lighting.
