Doctor Who’s Sonic Screwdriver is now a Wiimote
by Mark R
I don’t know if you are aware of this, but this blog comes out of the UK. Another UK franchise that has the coolest gadgets is none other than Doctor Who.
If you are not familiar with the show, it is about a time traveler. It has been on in some form since 1968, and the good doctor has been portrayed by ten different actors. I believe that the SyFy channel airs it now.
Some things about the show in the early days are quite dated, but some things have remained constant, like the Doctor’s Sonic Screwdriver. This was a tool that could operate any lock, mechanical or electronic. Apparently someone thought it would look good in Wiimote form.
The plan is to market this Wiimote with a Wii game that will be released in October known as Doctor Who: Return to Earth.
I suppose this will be good for all Doctor Who fans. Do Doctor Who fans have a name like Star Trek has Trekkies and Twilight has Twi-hards? Perhaps they should be called Who-sers, not to be confused with the film Hoosiers.
Anyway, my Source doesn’t seem to have a price or availability date on this product, but if the company that makes this Sonic Screwdriver Wiimote is smart, then it should be out before the game’s release in October.
