Magic Wands Really Work

LONDON (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Turning the lights off only takes a flick of a magic wand.

Harry Potter isn’t the only one who can wield a wand now that London’s The Wand Company sells real working magic wands that require no schooling at Hogwarts to master.

The wands use the same technology found in remote controls and can switch lights on and off, work a television, and do anything else a remote can do.

Creator Chris Barnardo says the gizmo gives those who’ve “always wanted to do magic” a chance to have special powers just like their favorite wizards.

And there’s nothing fake about the amazing magic it produces.

He explains, “It’s a really exciting piece of equipment because it actually lets you control things from across the room. It makes you feel like you’re doing real magic.”

Users have said that waving the wand is like a “trip into fantasy.”
