I was reading one of my favorite blogs, Design Boner, when I came across what I believe to be the coolest remote control ever: The Sharp Shootin’ Remote Control.
Talk about un-pc. This is a gun shaped remote control. It is designed to look like a wild west six-shooter and can control one function from your regular remote, be it channel down, volume up, power off – whatever. Simply point it at the tv, and shoot away. It even makes a toy gun “bang” sound every time you pull the trigger.
Neatly packaged, it comes with a sheriff’s badge so everyone knows who really controls the remote. It’s available on-line at a variety of novelty stores including firebox.com, what on earth catalog, and x-tremegeek.com. But the best price I could find it for was at auctionaticstore.com for $7.99.
Who knew how inexpensive it would be to become the sheriff of your own tv? I think I can’t resist. I’ve gotta have one. Now all I have to do is dust off my cowboy boots, dig up my old cowboy hat, and throw 3:10 to Yuma on the dvd player. Ride ’em cowpoke!
