A group of Harry Potter fans in NYC got together on weekends to create a fully-functioning smart wand to celebrate the Harry Potter prequel “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them” coming out this November.
The Muggle Wand has a Voice Recognition Module, Wifi, PowerBoost, Vibrating Motor Disc, lithium battery, Switch, mic, and other components in a slender wand form. Connected to websites and wifi-connected products, this smart wand is made to recognize voice spells and serve related functions, such as summoning(ordering) items, turning on and off the light, playing and silencing the music, etc.
“Growing up reading Harry Potter books and watching the movies, I’ve always wished I could cast magic myself. We’re not born with magic, but we already have technology to keep it alive.”
- Dofl Yun, creative technologist and long time Harry Potter Fanatic.
