Soon we will all be able to pray while we channel surf!

Zemlyanoj Val ul, a man from Russia, has trademarked something called “Remobeads,” a ring of beads you can hold, pray over, meditate on, and use to see what’s on VH1–all at the same time. You can even customize the beads to your favorite channels. (See the illustration below.)

Val ul’s website advertises the following:

“Nowadays the TV set is no longer accepted as a mere receiver. It has transformed into a cult object, the thing we can watch and interact with for hours, the source of our knowledge and inspiration. Now you can shift between channels effortlessly–just slightly pressing the beads. The beads are glowing, so you can easily see them in the darkness. As an option you can add a sound–enjoy listening to your favorite mantras while switching the channels.”

The source of our knowledge and inspiration? Listening to our favorite mantras while switching channels? Hmmm. Even as an Idol Chatterer, I don’t know if I’d go that far.

Interested? He’s looking for buyers….
