More than 50 years later, television viewers can control their channels with the Harry Potter Remote Control Wand. It’s not an Accio, or summoning charm, but the wand does the work of a remote.

This new piece of electronic wizardry is being sold on Amazon through the Noble Collection. It offers nine different commands, including “Flick Up,” “Flick Down” and the “Big Swish” to control a television or other electronic device. The wand is set up to act as your remote for any infrared remote device, including Blu-ray and DVD players, and PlayStation and Xbox console.

The wand lists for $49 on Amazon.

New device lets parents hold smartphone, feed baby simultaneously

For parents of newborn babies that need to multitask, a new device could be the answer to their problems.

Swipe&Feed is a smartphone and baby bottle accessory. It was invented by Tim Causa of Reston, Virginia, who was trying to figure out a way to catch up on work while feeding his son, Jack. The infant had acid reflux issues and had to take a bottle every hour, Causa told WTVM.

"For 25 minutes at a time, I was in a dark, quiet room feeding my son. It dawned on me that I could do some catch-up work while he fed, but I needed something to help me hold a bottle and my smartphone," Causa told WTVM. "I searched online for solutions, but nothing was on the market. That's when I decided to seize the opportunity and solve the problem myself."

Causa said the device will fit iPhone 6, 6s or the new iPhone 7 without a case, in addition to most Android devices. The device also fits most baby bottle sizes. 

Pre-orders are available via their website and on a Kickstarter page. 

Causa appeared on the “Today” show on Wednesday and noted afterward on his Facebook page that the Kickstarter goal already has passed 50 percent with 18 days remaining.

“It's hard to believe that an idea I had a year ago has progressed from a rough prototype to a professionally engineered, patent pending product that has now been featured on the ‘Today’ show,” he wrote.

Causa told WTVM that there has been some backlash on social media about his device impeding on the quality bonding time between a parent and child.

"Quite frankly, since I used it at night, I don't think much bonding time is being missed out on during those dark-room-3 a.m, bottle feedings,” he told the station via email. “I think the most disturbing aspect is how quickly people forget that parenting is tough, and shaming a parent who is doing their best and occasionally needs to find a break is terrible.

"We expected some backlash — the internet is full of warriors without a cause, but I'm hoping that my product would provide a solution to working parents like us who are just trying to do their best."

There’s been much buzz about Pizza Hut’s Triple Treat Box, a sliding, trilevel, holiday-themed box with two pizzas, an order of breadsticks or flavor sticks and a specialty dessert.

The product, which debuted in the Middle East in April, was brought to the U.S. at the beginning of November to the delight of many American customers.

To celebrate the product's arrival in the U.S., the restaurant chain surprised a few families in Orem, Utah with a special delivery. 

What the families expected to be routine pizza deliveries, quickly turned into holiday flash-mob extravaganzas.

“Rather than being greeted by a typical pizza delivery driver, these families were treated to a flash mob in their very own front yard, complete with holiday carolers, a live handbell performance, two full choirs, a big brass band and an electric guitar solo, all resulting in one absolutely epic holiday pizza delivery,” a Pizza Hut representative told News965.

Watch the video below.

A recently published Bloomingdale's holiday advertisement has gone viral on social media, with people calling out the company for encouraging date rape.

People have posted the ad to Facebook and Twitter, with many writing negatives comments on how it is “inappropriate,” “creepy,” and is in “poor taste,” The Wall Street Journal reports. The ad has received more than 3,000 comments on social media. 

The company has since issued a statement that reads, “In reflection of recent feedback, the copy we used in our current catalog was inappropriate and in poor taste. Bloomingdale’s sincerely apologizes for this error in judgment.”
