This is the OFA Digital 12 (URC7781) from One to One. No, it doesn't have a particularly catchy name, but this little gadget could become the lazy person's new best friend, given that it can control up to 12 different appliances in your home. TVs, DVD players, freeview boxes - you name it. It even has the ability to switch your lights off, dim them or control a whole cluster of lamps, so technically speaking, you need never get off your chair again. It'll be available from mid to late November in major stockists including Curry’s, Curry's Digital, Comet, John Lewis, Maplin, and in Argos from January.
