Do you like this quasi-futuristic remote I designed? It’s based on the device used by Dr. Evil to fire his employees. It’s intended to be a streaming remote, compatible with devices like the Roku or Chromecast. It enables users to fire up their preferred streaming service at the push of a button.
The one major change I made was the addition of a rotary joystick in the middle. It can be moved for navigating menus, pressed like a button, and rotated for volume control. This sort of input is common in cars with infotainment displays.
This remote sits on a coffee table, though it shouldn’t be too cumbersome to hold or place on your lap. It may need to be plugged into a PC or programmed from a smartphone app, much like a Logitech Harmony remote. It would come with numerous labels for all the streaming services, and it shouldn’t be too difficult to print your own if needed.

I really admire your quasi futuristic remote from Austin Powers international man of mystery (1997) so I was wondering if u could make a quasi futuristic remote for my cousins birthday, my cousin Stanley’s birthday is (10-05), so be sure to let me know when your done and send it to 2601 Barry Avenue, Los Angeles, CA 90064 and I’ll deliver it to my cousins fiesta.
