If you thought the Potechi-no-te potato chip grabber was bizarre, get ready for the Terebi no Te Television Hand Finger TV Wand, a remote control "hand" from Takara Tomy for controlling your TV! Available in two colors, the simple but fun battery-powered "hand" works with TV sets from most major Japanese manufacturers.
It will be like magic switching channels using the "finger navigation system". Just wave the wand/hand vertically to turn on the television, and then horizontally while holding down the buttons to change the channel or adjust the volume. The cheekily named "finger skip system" means that you can also use the "finger" on the hand to turn the pages of a magazine (e.g. a TV listings guide), and there is also a mini LED so you can light up what you are looking at in the dark.
The Takara Tomy Television Hand Finger Waver TV Wand features:
- Works with TVs from Sony, Sharp, Hitachi, Toshiba, Panasonic, Mitsubishi, Sanyo, Pioneer, Victor
- Color: orange, blue
- Power: LR44 batteries x 2
- Instructions: Japanese (but with easy to use and understand buttons)
