Product Description

Control your Earth-based TV with this Doctor Who collectible Sonic Screwdriver

Ever since Patrick Troughton, the second Doctor, first produced it from his jacket, the sonic screwdriver has been Doctor Who's most valued, iconic, coveted, not to mention extremely cool gadget. Now, for the first time, Doctor Who fans have the opportunity to transport a little bit of the Time Lord's technology into their own homes.

A high quality metal replica of the Mark VII Sonic Screwdriver currently used by the eleventh Doctor, Matt Smith, the new Sonic Screwdriver Universal Remote Control is a gesture-based universal remote control that utilises infrared (IR) technology to manipulate almost all earth-based home entertainment systems - from TVs and iPod docks to DVD/Blu-ray players and beyond.

With a green flashing tip and an impressive four operational modes - including a practice mode - and three memory banks, a total of 39 commands can be stored in the Sonic Screwdriver Universal Remote Control, giving the option of operating multiple home entertainment devices with just a different flick of the wrist.

Control your TV like The Doctor himself

Control is straightforward - even for humans. The Sonic Screwdriver Universal Remote Control works through a series of 13 short gestures, such as rotating, flicking or tapping, and a guided set-up procedure uses spoken prompts to match gestures to commands learned from existing remote controls.

And, for those fans who wish to transport a little more of the Time Lord into their own homes, the FX Mode features a range of authentic vintage Doctor Who sound effects.

Customer Reviews

It's very easy to program, and to use as well.
I'm sure that I've forgotten something, but really, overall the Sonic Screwdriver Universal Remote is great.
I bought this as a X-Mas present for my girlfriend and she loved it.

My hobby is restoring sci-fi sets and props, and it's a constant battle to respect the art of the original non-interactive "on set" prop while adding enough electronics to make the restored piece as impressive as what was seen on screen with post-production sound effects and graphics.

With this Sonic Screwdriver remote, the Wand Company has really done the impossible; they have a prop that is about 95% accurate to the hero hand-built brass pieces on set, while the electronics inside make for a piece that is EVEN BETTER than what's seen on the show.

First, we have the "universal remote" function. We've seen novelty universal remotes before, but this takes it one step further by using gestures and taps (akin to a Wii controller) to do the controlling so the piece isn't covered with non-authentic buttons and switches. Like playing a Wii game, the gestures take a bit of practice to get right - but that's half the fun!

But that's not what impresses me most about this Sonic remote. By turning off the remote function you can put the device in "FX mode" and unlock over a dozen sound effects by gestures or combinations of gestures. Apart from the lower volume (more appropriate for a home environment), this device was built for the convention or costuming circuit. It's also much more robust than the other high-end replica Doctor Who props, official or otherwise - so the $100 remote should survive a few more falls and scrapes than your $400 noisemaker artisan replica, or even the handmade on-set props which the actors constantly break.

The amount of extra work put in the programming of these Sonics to coax a fun performance out of a collection of sound effects is stunning.

Verified Purchase
If you have the money and really like the show enough, I'd honestly suggest getting 2. one to play with and 1 to...just have. Over all I am still a little unsure if it was right for me to buy it, financially. I find i don't use it as often as i'd like because of the price i paid for it. regardless i am extremely happy with the item.

I am usually not one to buy props or replicas, however for some reason i felt an overwhelming need to purchase this. I absolutely love it. I currently use it for my A/C and TV in one room. i programmed the tv to cycle through favorite channels and just use the fav channel as a single action when I'm not sure what i want to watch. in a seperate room i have it programmed to work with my WDTV live.

I noticed its hard to point at something without it activating a command by accident. so instead What ive done is put commands that wont do much harm such as the arrows on the remote to the swing animations, then i purposely trigger them while pointing at the device i want so as not to accidentally trigger something else. I also found that the clockwise and counter clockwise are quite sensitive and once can trigger multiple times during one turn which makes them good for things like volume, however once one direction starts its hard to switch to the opposite direction. it is also a bit of a hassle trying turn the item to use the taps without triggering the clockwise and counter clockwise. What ive done most recently is to not use clock wize or anti at all, or put it on a button that has no use. instead i use tapping up and down to control volume and i found that if you hold the volume button during programming a single tap can now raise or lower the volume by 3 or 4 instead of 1 at a time.

I have had a couple of months to really make an informed appraisal about this remote control. At first I had some trouble with it, as I kept getting a "battery low" message. To my surprise, after posting a message on a prop board about it, the OWNER of the company responded back and let me know that the issue was with me holding the button on my 'parent' remote too long while programming the sonic remote from The Wand Company. So simple and problem solved! Excellent customer service where the owner responds personally, also the fact that they patrol the boards shows that they care about us, their customers.

On to the sonic. First off, it is BEAUTIFUL! The plating is flawless and the sonic has a nice weight to it. It looks and feels like a Gallifreyan tool! I have had enless hours of satisfaction using it as a remote for my DVD and TV. My 13 year old daughter thinks it's the coolest thing ever to have a "working sonic screwdriver!"

The gesture based controls do take a moment to get used to, but they are very easy to learn. There is a tutorial on the remote that learns your movements and helps you get the feel of using it. Afterwards it is very simple to operate.

Aside from all of that (If it isn't enough) there is an FX mode that allows you to use the gesture based movements to hear the different sounds from the Who universe! There is even a cool easter egg of Morse Code flashes if left alone too long. "One of them is 'Fish fingers and custard'" but the rest you'll have to translate for yourself.

When you think of what it must have taken to produce this sonic remote control replica, I am amazed that it is priced so low!

Not to mention a free display case and a fun fold out poster with all sorts of clever Who-goodiness!

If you are a fan, or if there is a fan you are shopping for, buy them The Wand Company's Sonic Screwdriver Remote Contol. They will smile for months and love you forever!
