The SmartControl Motion remote might look as boring as that Cheryl Cole documentary you're trying to fast forward through but keep your guard up – it can take down up to six of your power-sucking, home ents gadgets in one fell swoop. Just flip the remote over onto its belly and you'll turn all your devices off – or stick to your old world ways and hold the power button for three seconds.
With play, pause, mute, rewind, skip and channel up/down motions to get to grips with too, it's compatible with Sky+ and Freeview+ on your TV, Blu-ray players, iPod docks, Xbox 360 and (oddly enough) the PS2. Released into the wilderness of gadget-filled living rooms on November 7, you can pick up a SmartControl Motion for £35 from Amazon.
