Cool.Con Universal Remote Takes the Pain Out of Channel Surfing

May 28, 2009

It may not be immediately apparent, but channel surfing can be a strenuous, body-beating activity. To combat the stresses of couch potato-ing, an enterprising Korean company has decided to kill two birds with one stone.


Despite its sticky-bomb appearance, the Cool.con universal remote was created to relieve pain rather than unleash it. The spikes are designed to massage the pressure points in your hand as you sit there barking out incorrect answers to Family Feud questions.

This palm reflexology is apparently all you need to know in order to understand the medicinal benefits of your new universal remote, which appears to cure anything from headaches to, uhm... kidney failure?


Sounds like a pretty good deal for 15,500 KRW, or about $13. Though it's only available in Korea now, this breakthrough in therapeutic entertainment is bound to come stateside soon. [Technabob]
