Because remote control is so muggle.
From the land of Harry Potter, Kymera Magic Wand is probably one of the coolest things to control your electronic device instead of using ordinary remote control. You can change channel with just a flick up or down. The wand comes with 13 gestures including big swish, push forward, double tabs which you can assign it to command whatever you wish it to do. 49.95 GBP (Fee shipping in UK, +10 for worldwide shipping) In my opinion, it is a bit pricey for infrared wand. But hey, may be it feels like magic.
