Scientists ‘Very Close’ To Developing TV Remote Control That Doesn’t Lose Battery Cover
SCIENTISTS at MIT have confirmed that the world will soon see television remote controls that don’t end up with a lost battery cover in just a matter of decades, WWN reports.
Missing battery covers have long been the bane of man’s existence and experts now believe a new technology in development will eradicate the problem for good.
“We’ve been working on this since the late 1970s and we have finally solved the issue, but the technology is just not quite there yet,” lead researcher Dr. Daniel Reeves told WWN.
It is understood that most television remote controls lose their battery cover within the first year of use, with a usual duct or Sellotape solution improvised by the user until the sticky side fades and eventually falls off, leaving behind a sticky dirt loving rim around the casing.
“The batteries then fall out very easily when knocked over and can cause high levels of stress and cursing in the user in question,” Dr. Reeves explains, “sometimes the batteries are then put back in the wrong way and damage the remote control itself, leading to further fucks being given”.
The new technology in development will prevent the battery case from coming loose by quantum fusion, however, such a process is costly, and scientists expect the first tv remote control that doesn’t lose its case will cost well into the thousands of euros.
“It could cost anywhere up to $7,000, but we believe it is worth it to avoid the stress of losing the batteries and trying to find them under the fucking chair,” Dr. Reeves concluded.
