Through a couple of simple search bar hacks, you can now wave your wand and say (type) the magic words and experience life as Harry Potter — or Hermione, maybe; but definitely not Ron.
To use any of the spells, simply type the bolded word into your search bar — wand waving optional.

If you’d like to watch the world burn (or at least Amazon’s home page), try Incendio.

Or Reducto if you’re experiencing a case of the Monday’s.

If you were expecting a spell for condoms and toilet paper, maybe you should try a programmable Dash button. It’s equally magical, but far more practical.
