Shake Control / remote control

Shake Control
Shake Control

Shake Control is a television remote control that works without batteries. It contains a visible arrow-shaped magnet along with coils of wire. When the remote control is shaken, electromagnetic induction generates a 20-30mA current. When the tip of the arrow-shaped magnet hits the top of the unit, the remote control changes the channel or the volume. The remote control contains a gravity sensor that can gauge the direction of shaking. When the arrow is pointed up, the channel goes up. When it is pointed down, the channel goes down. When the arrow faces left, volume goes down. When it faces right, the volume goes up.
