Who hasn’t wanted at some point in their lives to be able to wave a magic wand and with a magical flick or swish, control the things around their home? Now with the Kymera, the world’s first real magic wand, you can do just that. The gestures are easy to master, very repeatable and cleverly matched to a range of actions, designed to really make you feel as if you are performing real magic. Deftly pull the wand back to open your DVD drawer, push it forwards with a smart snap to close it; rotate the wand gently between thumb and forefinger to adjust the volume or flick its delicate tip an inch to the right to skip to the next track – owning is believing. The Kymera Wand makes the perfect gift. Easing the lid off the Kymera’s dark faux dragonhide covered box reveals the rich Eastern pattern of the silken lining. The word “Kymera” comes from the name given to a fabulous fire-breathing mythical beast called the Chimaera. With its lion’s head and serpent’s tail, the Chimaera was a formidable mixture of different creatures. Thus the Kymera Wand gets its name from its curiously satisfying blend of ancient aesthetic values and modern technology that makes it what it is, because hidden well beneath the seamless cloak of the lovingly-designed Victorian form, beats a electromechanical heart of pure Sci-Fi wizardry. Owning is believing.

Tame the Beast of HD Pictures with this magic device! You know you have always wanted to be a wizard. But not one of those swish and flick wizards from the movies. You want to be the Dungeons & Dragons wizard – the party’s controller. See that word there? CONTROLLER. It means you control the battlefield; you control everything! Sure, you’re squishy and sometimes there’s collateral damage when you let out a blast, but it’s all in a day’s work. As a wizard, you have a choice in implements, but everyone knows The Wand is the ultimate when you want to be an elite controller. Our Wand may not make legions of kobold minions explode into flames, but it will learn up to 13 commands from your existing remote controls and map them to particular magical motions. Flick the wand from side to side to flip the channels, twist the wand to turn up the volume. A beam of light will shoot out the unicorn tail hair and magic will happen! The Wand can learn from any remotes in your house and once you master its 13 movements, you can mastermind a symphony of electronic enjoyment from the comfort of your couch. Then, and only then, are you an epic level controller.

Kymera Wand is a Universal Remote Control is not a toy: it is an advanced, gesture based universal remote control, designed to control almost all home entertainment equipment worldwide such as TVs, DVD players, Blu-ray players and iPod docks, using infrared codes learned from conventional remote controls by the means of gestures rather than by pressing buttons. 13 different gestures enable the Kymera to learn up to 13 remote control functions from any infrared remote control. gently pulsing in your hand with discreet vibrations it tells you what you are doing. Whether you want to turn up the volume by rolling the wand as if you are magically turning a volume knob, to pull back the wand to open a DVD or Blu-ray drawer, or doing a big exuberant swish to turn your TV on or off, the power is yours. The authentic flicking and swishing action allows the Kymera Wand to be used exactly in the same way a student of the magical arts in any of the now famous magical school is taught to. The Kymera Wand is powered by AAA batteries which deliver six or more months of magic between changes.

To program the Kymera Wand, enter Programming Mode and perform the desired gesture; the Wand will tell you which gesture it thinks you have done by pulsing in your hand the number of times for that gesture, i.e. one pulse for Rotate, or three pulses for Flick Up for example, then the wand will start rapid pulsing to signify that it is waiting to receive the IR code (button press) from a normal remote control. Hold a normal remote control about 1” (2.5cm) from the tip of the wand while it is rapidly pulsing, and briefly press and release the normal remote control button for the function you want to program on to that gesture. It’s that easy!

Can the Kymera Wand perform all functions of my remote control? No. The Kymera Wand can learn the infra-red (IR) codes from 13 of the buttons on your existing remote controls. This is enough for you to have some fun performing “magic” at home, but we didn’t design the Wand to be a full-functioning replacement remote control. You can over-write any of the 13 functions with new IR codes at any time, if you change your mind about the functions that you want the wand to perform.

Is the Kymera Wand easy to use? Like any magical instrument, it takes a bit of practice to master the Kymera Wand. Some people seem to be natural wizards and perform magic with it straight away, but for most muggles about ten minutes’ practice is required to get the hang of the different movement gestures. Please note that the Wand does require quite precise hand movements to perform the gestures, so we do not recommend it as a remote control for the elderly or infirm.

On March 26, 1978, WAND’s tower was brought down by a massive ice storm. All but 100 feet of the tower fell down under the weight of massive sheets of ice. The collapse exposed a serious design flaw in the tower. Due to WAND’s location near the bottom of the UHF dial, the antenna had been one of the heaviest ever used for broadcasting. However, the tower had been designed with the specifications of a much lighter antenna, and was thus not properly engineered to handle so much weight. The same storm destroyed the former tower of WJJY (which had gone off the air seven years earlier), which was of a similar design and had been assembled by the same company. WAND was off-the-air for two weeks until it returned to the air from its original tower. The translator was eventually moved back to Champaign still on channel 68. This left Danville without over-the-air programming from ABC for several months.
