Kymera Magic Wand

Since its appearance on Dragons' Den, the Kymera Magic Wand has seen a wave of popularity. It shouldn't be dismissed as gimmicky though.

With the ability to recognise up to 13 gestures and learn infrared codes from any remote control, the Kymera wand could bring magic home this Christmas without the need for the latest Harry Potter DVD.

Not being device specific also means this is probably the only time you can hold your wand, flick your wrist and turn on several models around you while keeping some dignity.

Parrot AR.Drone

Remote controlled helicopters are all the rage at the moment and can be picked up for small change, but how about this bad boy?

Featuring quad-blades and two cameras, Parrot's AR.Drone is controlled by an iOS device over a Wi-Fi network and is more a gaming device than just an RC helicopter.

Several game modes are possible including the option to have dogfights with other AR.Drones using a live video feed from its onboard cameras. Okay, it's quite pricey, and you'd probably want two, but RC vehicles have never looked so fun.
