I’m generally a cool, calm, and collected guy, but one of the few things that causes me to geek out is Doctor Who. I discovered the current incarnation of the show about a year ago and have been hooked every since. While I can’t afford high-end Doctor Who merchandise, I do think I have enough stuff to make me a certified Whovian. If I ever were to splurge on an expensive Doctor Who item, it would be this….a universal remote control that’s a replica of the twelfth Doctor’s sonic screwdriver.
The remote is made by the Wand Company, who – if you don’t remember – brought you this replica Star Trek communicator. It’s a 1:1 scale replica of the sonic screwdriver used on the show, with flick to extend action. The remote control is gesture based and can store up to 39 different functions. Additionally, the device has a grip-mounted action button which lights up the screwdriver and plays various sounds.
If you’re interested in this Sonic Screwdriver – and let’s be honest, why wouldn’t you be – you can pre-order it from the BBC store for £79.95 ($124.90). The sonic screwdriver will be available September 7th.
