No tardis required
If you're a fan of the science fiction show Doctor Who, you'll definitely want to own this Sonic Screwdriver Programmable TV Remote from ThinkGeek. This remote will ship in early September for $99.95 and is made from hand polished and copper plated die cast metal.
The remote can store 13 gestures and has three memory banks for a total of 39 remote control codes. It has no buttons and you have to use gestures to control the TV with things such as rotating clockwise or counterclockwise to control the volume. It makes spiffy sound effects from the television series and has a learning mode so you can learn to make the gestures required control your TV. The sound effects can be turned off.
