If you’re in need of a remote control and have $18 to blow, you might want to consider this touchscreen remote control watch from Brando. The device features a programmable touchscreen face that will allow you to control home theater peripherals directly from your wrist. Maybe not the most useful component, but not the most useless either.
I used to have a watch similar to this in junior high. When I got bored in class, I would cycle through the remote codes until I locked on the one of the the class TV. The teacher would then spend the rest of the class in a hissy fit trying to figure out why the TV was going crazy. Amusingly, not one of them ever thought to just unplug the thing.
