Gross Panasonic remote recalls Cronenberg's "Existenz"

This very strange-looking Panasonic remote reminds me of the computers they stroke in Existenz. I couldn’t find the clip, so here’s where Jude law finds a bone-gun in his soup. The idea of this remote is, I believe, that it remains flaccid, lambent with a pulsating light, until touched — at which point it becomes firm and functional.

It wouldn’t be half so suggestive if they didn’t make it that rather caucasian color. You couldn’t do a delicious watermelon color, Panasonic?
