When you refuse to get 'The Clapper'

This RC socket switch might help retain your dignity--or not


Here at Crave, we're unfailingly dedicated to conserving energy--especially our own. So to do our part in the fight against NBM (Needless Bodily Movement), we're always on the lookout for gadgets like the "Remote-Controlled Switch Socket."

This handy little thing facilitates our slothful ways with a remote that acts as a wireless toggle switch for whatever is plugged into its special socket on the wall within 100 feet, according to Uber-Review. Yes, "The Clapper" will do the same thing, but please--allow us some shred of what little dignity we have left.

Our only concern is losing it among the 15 or 20 other remotes in our house. Hey, now there's an idea: How about a remote to find your remote?
