"Wind Up" Remote Control

Migrated Image

Hippy Shopper recently featured the UK-version of this gadget, and we thought we'd feature the US version. It's a remote control that you charge by winding it up — thus eliminating the need for batteries. You can control six different devices with the remote, including your television, DVD player, VCR, cable, satellite, and an auxiliary module. The wind-up generator requires only 30 revolutions for a full charge, which will last seven days. It's priced at $23. :: SmartHome
