Not in the way you’d think, though: this isn’t about books, nor is it about the movies, and it’s not even about that mysterious new “Pottermore” site Rowling released recently. No, in fact, this is about you. You now can literally be Harry Potter. Or Hermione Granger if you’re a

girl. And what you can control with your magic is none other than the greatest box ever invented for the human race:
Introducing the “Magic Wand Remote Control.” All technology sites like source2html.org would kick their legs on Broadway over this cool piece of hardware.
It looks like Harry Potter’s wand, but it’s a remote control. With 13 programmable commands, all you need to do is “Wingardium Leviosa” your way to changing channels and upping or downing the volume — all without pressing a single button. That’s right, using motion technology, you simply need to wave the wand and enjoy your direct.tv movie and tv show marathon.
How you wave the wand will determine what you’ll do to the TV — changing the channel, changing the volume, turning the TV on and off, maybe even working the Cable, DVD Player, or Blu-Ray. Whatever you choose, however you program the wand, you have a total of 13 commands. Basically like magic — only you can’t turn your TV into a flying griffin. Don’t even try it. The wand is so smart, like magic, it will even turn itself off after being inactive for 60 seconds; the moment you pick it up, the wand “wakes up” for you!
Harry Potter, eat your heat out. You didn’t have any TVs in the Gryffindor Common Room, did you?
