Introducing the Doctor Who Sonic Screwdriver Universal Remote Control

We’re excited to share this one. A sonic screwdriver television universal remote.

Can we say that one more time? A SONIC SCREWDRIVER UNIVERSAL REMOTE(!!!)

The Wand Company - known for developing the World’s first infrared remote control magic wand and BBC Worldwide today reveal a must-have accessory for Doctor Who fans – the Sonic Screwdriver Universal Remote Control. Join BBC Worldwide in the North American unveiling of the remote control at the 2012 San Diego Comic-Con, in BBC AMERICA booth #3629 starting preview night July 11 through the end of Comic Con.

A high quality metal replica of the Mark VII Sonic Screwdriver currently used by the Eleventh Doctor, Matt Smith, the new Sonic Screwdriver Universal Remote Control is a gesture-based universal remote control that utilises infrared (IR) technology to manipulate almost all earth-based home entertainment systems - from TVs and iPod docks to DVD/Blu-ray players and beyond.

With a green flashing tip and an impressive four operational modes – including a practice mode – and three memory banks, a total of 39 commands can be stored in the Sonic Screwdriver Universal Remote Control, giving the option of operating multiple home entertainment devices with just a different flick of the wrist.

We just played with it at the BBC America booth and it’s pretty easy to use. It’s also really really cool.

It goes on sale August 31, 2012 exclusively for the first 60 days at ThinkGeek and the BBC America Shop in the US, and Forbidden Planet and in the UK.

In the meantime, stop by the BBC America booth (#3629) at San Diego Comic Con to check it out.
