Change channels with a Sonic Screwdriver

Thinkgeek presents Doctor Who themed remote control

I love the ThinkGeek web site for all things geeky, and their April Fool's parodies are awesome. Most of the time, though, their videos are just commercials for some of the products they're selling, so I try to avoid publishing them here because of their advertising nature.

But I don't care on this one, because the gadget is so freaking cool. Check out a Doctor Who-themed Sonic Screwdriver that also acts as a universal remote control for your TV.

The remote uses gesture control instead of buttons as well. As we say in the geek-o-sphere, "Shut up and take my money!"
