Product Description
Know any Dr Who fans? Well, buying stuff for those keen on the timelord is a breeze as they’ve gotta be the easiest people to buy gifts for! From the earliest incarnations of William Hartnell and John Pertwee right through to David Tennant and the eleventh Doctor , Matt Smith, The Doctor has become a Saturday night icon on small screens everywhere. So this replica of one of the most famous props on television now takes the form of a universal remote control thanks to those clever people who invented the Kymera remote control wand of BBC Dragon’s Den fame.  Ever since Patrick Troughton, the second Doctor, first produced it from his jacket, the SONIC SCREWDRIVER has been Doctor Who’s most valued, iconic, coveted, not to mention extremely cool gadget. Now, for the first time, Doctor Who fans have the opportunity to transport a little bit of the Time Lord’s technology into their own homes. A high quality metal replica of the Mark VII Sonic Screwdriver currently used by the 11th 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. Control is straightforward – even for humans. The Sonic Screwdriver Universal Remote Control works through a series of 13 short gestures, such as rotating, flicking or tapping, and a guided set
