We’re not sure how Harry Potter control anything with his magic, but the hand-controlled LED candle from Hogwarts can be controlled with a simple gesture even though you have no magic. Like the idea? Let’s have a look.
This is an officially licensed, and pretty cool LED candle inspired by Harry Potter. The candle approx measures 6-1/2 inches tall by 2 inches diameter and weighs 8 oz. As we can see from the images, it may come from those floating candles in the Great Hall at Hogwarts, but the original spell has been replaced with technology so that it can fit for any Muggle. Meanwhile, the real wax body delivers a realistic and retro appearance design, while the Hogwarts House crest shows off its birthplace.
With a built-in IR sensor, the LED wax candle can be controlled with simple gestures. Just waving your hand over the candle, you can effortlessly turn it on or change its color. And built-in LED light features three brightness levels and four colors. Its Hogwarts House mode cycles through the House colors: red, blue, green and yellow. Moreover, the LED candle is powered by two replaceable AA batteries.
The Harry Potter hand-controlled LED candle is priced at $19.99 USD. If you’re interested, jump to ThinkGeek for its more details.
