Due to my family being sick we couldn’t manage to watch the movie by now but certainly you have.

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows

From the remarks on twitter and some reviews it seems to be a much more mature movie. Not a simple adventure like the others, but rather a deeper character study.

Looking forward to enjoy it, accompanied by my Kymera Wand which keeps me safe in this muggle world of techo-mages.

As I sadly can’t visit QCon London this year and add the Kymera Wand as drawing price there, I’d like to do a virtual drawing for a Kymera Wand until the end of March.

That is also a chance for all other people who were not able to attend QCon London this month to enter one of the popular exhibition drawings.

The Kymera Wand is a truly magical device. It allows you to control many of the apparatuses at home using invisible beams of light. It recognizes up to 13 gestures of control to cast spells of all kinds to differnt devices.

(read: It’s a universal gesture based infrared control in the form of a magic wand.)

I am happy to announce the winner of the January competition. Fortunately Fortuna drew the one that made me start this competition at all. Paul posted the original list of incantations that make your Kymera Wand magic spells much more impressive. Thanks for the idea.

Everyone else – thanks for participating. I hope you had fun devising your incantations and will take part in future drawings.

Accio Kymera!
