Modeled after the Kymera Wand, I designed, programmed and built a fully functional Magic Wand TV Remote. In case you are not familiar with the Kymera Wand, a Magic Wand TV Remote functions without pressing any buttons. By waving the wand in different ways, different commands are sent to your television. Using Arduino, I have programmed my Magic Wand TV Remote to turn the TV and cable on and off, control HDMI functions, and to turn volume and channels up and down.
