Energy Sistem URC3100


Energy Sistem™ isn’t exactly a common typo on the tip of the tongue, but – much like the problem of mysteriously vanishing remote controls – they’ve been around for a while. Barring the kleptomaniac hoardings of some thieving soon-to-be-ex friend, or a lonely and capacious housewife, the blame must lay squarely on our quest for progressively miniaturised technology. A quest manufacturers seem determined to embark upon regardless of consequence – and to which they subsequently offer their own solutions; for a modest price, of course. So in search of a stop-gap between sanity and industrial genocide, we stumble most readily across the likes of this Universal 3100 Remote Control. Whereupon the wrath of our idle thumb-poking is more than satisfied. At least until someone miniaturises the sofas behind which it’s sure to disappear.
