Remote control made to be more “human-like”

This gel-remote control which was redesigned by Panasonic as something that is “waiting to be touched” actually seems a bit more freaky than functional. Constructed from a soft, flesh-like gel, the remote appears to be cold when turned off. When on, a soft light glows from its middle and the device begins to mimic the motions of “breath” by moving ever so slightly. Just be careful not to lose it in a sex shop, otherwise it might be mistaken for something else.

    Looks like someone’s seen the movie eXistenZ too many times.

    The description gives me flash backs to Videodrome, with its breathing pulsing TVs and Video cassettes.
