In future We do not need batteries for TV remote?

This remote control is a wind-up

Written by Rene Millman Sunday, 28 December 2008 When remote controls run out of juice it can be frustrating to find batteries to make it go again. Luckily one manufacturer has managed to stop us getting wound up over dead remotes by making a zapper that, err, winds up.
The Wind-up Remote Control from EZ Power just needs 30 turns on its jog shuttle dial at the base of the device to make it function. The turning action builds up power in its rechargable batteries in the same way those Trevor Baylis wind-up radios work.

After said amount of turns the device is fully charged and good to go for several days before requiring more turns. Not only that, it is a universal remote meaning that it will control all your boxes, such as a DVD, TV, Sky+ or cable.

One user of the unit said that "there was more than enough time to carry out this operation in the ad breaks. The obvious plus of the remote is that you never need, run out of, or have to dispose of batteries again."

The zapper costs under 20 and can be bought from the Ethical Superstore.

This has more to do with batteries than remote controls. Hand charged flashlights have been here for quite a while.

I'm not so worried about changing batteries but more about finding the remote! Now if they can come up with a contraption to reliably locate your remote it would be something
