The remote can connect to and control most devices that use Wi-Fi

Turn Touch, a beautifully designed mahogany remote that is capable of controlling any device that links to your home’s Wi-Fi, aims to replace the common plastic remotes to which most users of smart technology have become accustomed.

The Turn Touch remote is equipped with four simple buttons, each of which can be held down for a half second to bring up a menu of four options (for a total of 16 commands). An accompanying iOS app allows the user to program the remote to perform multiple actions at once—for example, one button press could prepare the user’s living environment for sleep by turning off lights and music and lowering the temperature.

Among many other uses, the remote can be programmed to control an iPod or other music player, allowing the user to seamlessly switch playlists or turn up the volume on a favorite song without ever leaving his or her armchair.

Eight magnets hold the remote together, and according to Turn Touch’s creators, it’s built to last—although it may appear fragile due to its intricate design, the mahogany remote can stand up to falls and drops.

Crafted from solid wood with a mother of pearl inlay (a detail the company says give the devices an iridescent look), Turn Touch comes in three distinct varieties: mahogany and maple, paduak and satinwood, and rosewood and sycamore.

According to Kickstarter, the remotes will retail at a cost of $89 to $129. Supporters also have the option of choosing a more expensive, custom version with a mother of pearl inlay design of their initials, favorite animal or other image of their choice.
