In Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone, Ollivander says, "The wand chooses the wizard," but this is one wand you might just want to choose for yourself. Kano, the creators of the build-it-yourself computer, announced the release of the Harry Potter Kano Coding kit, aka a build-it-yourself wand.

"The build-it-yourself wireless wand shows you how to code and create, as you flick and swish through more than 70 challenges inspired by the Wizard World," according to a press release. "The wand works with software and a connected app to capture movements and turn them into rich effects."

Using the software and the wand together, you can code to easily re-create spells like "Wingardium Leviosa." I tested out the wand, and it is honestly one of the coolest Harry Potter products I've ever seen. Your entire family will be obsessed with it! While using it, I got so into creating the codes to allow me to do things like making serpents slither or transfiguring toads. Also, through the accompanying app, you can unlock challenges across six iconic settings including Hogwarts, Diagon Alley, Hogsmeade, and The Forbidden Forest.

The Harry Potter Kano Coding Kit is now available with a $100 price tag (but as of Dec. 13, it's 30 percent off on Amazon, so scoop it up quick!). Buy the wand below and take a look at some of the cool product photos and GIFs, as well as a Harry Potter-style video.
