No, this isn't one of the editors at Engadget, although -- judging by the way he conducts himself in this hands on video -- we'll probably drop him a line by the time CES 2010 rolls around. This DIY remote control consists of a USB number pad that's been rehoused in a toddler-safe enclosure and outfitted with some rather large buttons. It looks like it's just the thing for letting your little guy take control of Teletubbies, or Baby Einstein, or whatever it is the kids are into these days. Have a young one of your own? Hit the read link for the step-by-step instructions and thrilling in-progress photos. Video after the break.
