World's First Working Sonic Screwdriver is a Gesture Based TV Remote
If you’re a true Doctor Who fan, then you have surely lusted over the Doctor’s all powerful tool, the sonic screwdriver. And while over the years, many toy versions of the sonic screwdriver have been produced, the closest we have got to the real thing has been a dull sonic screwdriver pen or flash light. But that is all about to change with the upcoming Sonic Screwdriver Universal Remote Control that has been produced in partnership with the Wand Company and BBC Worldwide. This remote is not only a metal replica of the sonic screwdriver used by the eleventh doctor, but it’s also a universal remote control and a gesture based remote – that is capable of a total of 39 commands!
Chris Barnardo, Co-founder of The Wand Company says, “As well as being a universal remote control, the new Sonic Screwdriver will have a host of other great gadget features that we can’t wait to tell everyone about at Comic-Con.”
That means you can use the sonic screwdriver to flick, tap, and rotate your way around your television -whovian style! And if you’re lucky enough to be at Comic-con this year, then you can go and check out the world’s first working sonic screwdriver for yourself at Booth #3629. And if not, don’t fret, because ThinkGeek will be taking orders for the remote starting on August 31st. The remote will retail for $99, and it even comes with a neat stand for showing it off when not in use.
