Turning off a TV with the touch of a button doesn’t sound that great, any remote can do it. But this remote works for virtually any TV

Yep, the TV-B-Gone will turn just about any TV off within 69 seconds (most TVs only take 17). All you have to do is point, just make sure you don’t look too suspicious. ;)

Playing with this in crowded areas would be so much fun! Turning the TV off in a bar during the Super Bowl, or World Cup would cause chaos! There are probably some good, honest uses for the TV-B-Gone, but they’re just not nearly as much fun.

Now for some of the product details, the TV-B-Gone is powered by lithium batteries (included) which will last as long as a year, or as little as 3 months depending on usage. The Regular version works on TVs in the US, Canada, Mexico, and many Asian countries. A European version is also available. The TV-B-Gone is fairly small, it will easily fit on your key chain so you’ll never miss the perfect opportunity to use it.

Get your TV-B-Gone from ThinkGeek for $16.
