If you’re bothered by loud televisions in public places, or if you just love to pull practical jokes on friends, then I have the perfect gadget for you. It’s called a TV-B Gone and it’s the coolest and most fun little gadget that I’ve seen in a long time. Imagine being in the waiting room at the doctor’s office and having the ability to turn off that loud TV. Or, even better, imagine playing the ultimate practical joke on that friend who just bought one of those expensive, flat-paneled televisions.

Good luck keeping a straight face — It’s impossible.

A TV-B Gone is a tiny universal TV remote that can be used to turn on or off virtually any television set. Simply aim the remote at a TV and press the single button on the gadget; TV-B Gone will beam dozens of remote control signals until it finds the one that controls the TV that you want to turn on or off. The TV-B Gone is compact and fits on your keychain so you can always have it with you. It will not harm televisions, and comes completely operational out of the box.

The TV-B Gone is one of my all-time favorite gadgets because it’s not only useful and simple to use, it’s also inexpensive and a heck of a lot of fun to play with. I can’t remember the last time I had so much fun for $20.
