Panasonic Gel Remote Gets Hard When Touched by Humans

The Panasonic Gel Remote has got to be one of the most peculiar gadgets I’ve ever laid eyes on. It’s made of a gel-like substance and has light sensors inside its body.

When not in use, the Panasonic Gel Remote remains limp and lifeless. However, when the hand touches it, the sensors trigger it to become stiff and ready for use.

Although Panasonic’s Gel Remote looks nifty, I can’t help but wonder whether its outer layer is sticky. If so, it would be a horribly messy dust magnet. I’ll have to wait to find out though as the design is still in the concept stage.
