If you’re looking for a fancy remote control which you can use to control your TV or any infrared-based device in your house, you’re in luck because nothing gets fancier than this Dr. Who-inspired Sonic Screwdriver Programmable TV Remote. Despite the word Screwdriver in its name, let me assure you – it isn’t going to unscrew any screws for you. However, what it will do is let you program up to 39 remote control codes on it so you pretty much control all your devices in your living room and the rest of your home.
Since there are not many buttons on the device, controls are sent via gestures using the Sonic Screwdriver as though it was a wand. Want to adjust the volume? Rotate the gadget. Want to change TV channels? Flick it up and down. Need a light to look for something under the couch? Hit a button and turn it into a flashlight. If you want to pick up one of these bad boys, you can place your pre-order on ThinkGeek’s website for $99.95.
