Lantic Gold RC-1Meet the World’s stupidest remote control.

Sure, it has functionality to spare. It will control everything, including CCTV, air-conditioning, burglary alarm, lights, curtains, and even – the press release claims – the internet.

Well ok, maybe not the internet, but it did mention email and technically that’s part of the internet.

The problem here is that the $30,000.00 price tag is dictated solely by the decoration. The stock RC-1, from yacht makers Lantic Systems, is expensive at $1,050.00, but for what it does, not way overpriced.

The Gold RC-1, though, is exactly the same, except clad in gold.

That said, if you own a yacht, you’re probably the kind of sad showoff who needs to display his wealth by any means available.

If so, you can pre order now, for a December delivery.
