Sick of losing the remote control? Had enough of getting comfortable and then realising you’ve left the damned thing on the other side of the room? Boomerang Ltd has the solution.
Our boffins have teamed up with the makers of the Pop Swatch to create the latest innovation in remote control technology, the Doofer™. No longer will you miss vital seconds of your favourite programme looking for the remote, never again will a frustrated partner have to hear the dreaded words, ‘Pass me the bat’. The Doofer™ passes itself to you.
Using patented Boomerang Ltd technology, you can summon the Doofer™ from anywhere within a radius of 40ft, so unless you live in a ridiculously large house, this is the gadget you’ve been waiting for. The Doofer™ is also incredibly strong, and can lift up to three cushions at a time, making it suitable even[i] for an all-female household.
The Doofer™ comes in two parts. Part One is a standard remote control device except[i] it is fitted with a unique homing device which uses radio waves to link to Part Two, a stylish, futuristic, chunky bracelet which the owner wears round his or her wrist. When you want to change channel, simply press the red button on the bracelet; a powerful magnetic force will find the remote control, and it will fly across the room from wherever it lies, finally coming to rest in the bracelet’s specially designed cradle.
Not only that, every Doofer™ is unique and will respond only to your bracelet, so when your dad comes to stay, thinking he can hog the television like he does at his place, he will soon get a shock as he sees the remote fly out of his hand and onto your wrist, a shock matched only by his horror as Hitler’s Henchmen disappears from the TV screen to be replaced by Emmerdale. But rest assured, if he tries to pull a fast one by buying his own Doofer™ (which we strongly recommend), he will not be able to attract yours, no matter how hard he pushes the button.
So, for the latest in labour-saving remote control technology, look no further than the Doofer™ from Boomerang Ltd. Available now from JML and all purveyors of gadgets you didn’t know you wanted. RRP £2,999.99.
