CNET.de veröffentlichte vor einer Weile das “Gadget der Woche Video” mit dem Kymera Fernbedienungs-Zauberstab,
ich hab es leider jetzt erst gefunden, weil sie natürlich nicht den Namen “Kymera” erwähnen.
Für echte Herr-der-Ringe- und Harry-Potter-Fans kommt keine andere Zappe in die Tüte als die Zauberstab-Fernbedienung. In bester Gandalf-Manier lassen sich mit einem Schwung aus dem Handgelenk Big Brother, Topmodel & Co. durch den nächsten Fantasy-Actionknaller ersetzen. Wie gut das in der Praxis funktioniert, zeigt unser Video zum Gadget der Woche.
After I took the Kandela video last night, the wand and candles were still lying around when my kids got up. So they insisted on performing magic themselves. So they went on lighting and extinguishing the Kandela Candles with the wand for a while.
Today I received the first Kandela samples that were graciously sent to me by TheWandCompany’s Chris Barnardo.
Although it was already quite late, I recorded this Kandela demonstration video.
The packaging is really nice. Great display of the Candle and the Wand. I really like how the instructions are printed on the package with the languages interweaved like a helix.
The candles rubber material feels soft and warm. The light is flickering slightly but not annoyingly. It is fun to operate the candle but it would be even more fun to have lots of those candles around. Then you’d feel like Albus Dumbledore when casting the "Lumos" spell. It takes a bit of breath to blow out the candle but it works well.
The Kandela Wand is of the same size and shape as the Kymera Wand but has a different antique ivory finish and a blue jewel at the end (instead of a green one).
I was also able to program my Kymera Wand to operate the Kandela candle, although it was a bit tricky to align the wands while teaching it.
You have to insert 4 AAA batteries to operate it, two into the candle, two into the wand.
Really a great product and gift, stay tuned we’ll have the Kandela available soon.
Room with Kandela Candles
I also recorded a quick demonstration how a room with Kandela candles would look like when you illuminated it in the dark.
Some Updates at TheWandCompany site
The Kandela page now features an illuminated view of the candle on top of the manual.

Taking a break from my more serious reviews, here is a closer look at a highly original product, that brings smiles to everyone who sees and tries it. The Kymera Magic Wand actually DOES its magic… within its specifications.
Chances are, you will find it at the same time hilarious, ridiculous and indispensable!
Watch the clip to find out more. Abracadabra!
So Chris and Richard the Wand Makers from The Wand Company, took the step and offered investors a possibility to invest their money in Magic.
The Dragons were left spellbound by duo Richard Blakesley & Chris Barnardo and their universal remote control which looks like a magic wand.
Well done Wand-Makers, I hope the investor money will allow you to continue to invent and create such awesome products. All the publicity through the show should empty your stocks quickly.

If you don’t know Dragon’s Den Show on BBC TWO – here is a short description from their website:

Since series five, the five Dragons have been Duncan Bannatyne, James Caan, Deborah Meaden, Peter Jones and Theo Paphitis.
The Kymera Wand is a
