Around this time last year, on one of my Technopolis TV videos, I demonstrated a brilliant new British product, The Wand – a buttonless, gesture-controlled TV remote controller in the form of a wizard’s wand. Very Harry Potter-ish.
Since then, the small company producing The Wand has been very publicly invested in to the tune of £200,000 by TV Dragon Duncan Bannatyne, and for this Christmas… abracadabra… has this. Kandela is a child’s nightlight in the form of a highly realistic candle and, again, controlled by a wand. Sheer genius. Not far short of the perfect small Christmas present.
