2Harry Potter Inspired Wedding
This adorable couple actually met because of Harry Potter! Christine and Andy met online through a post about Harry Potter news, so it seemed only natural for their wedding to be influenced by the series.
Finding your seat has never been more fun... just leave it up to the sorting hat. The wands were personalized with the name and wedding date of the couple and each has a tag telling you which house you belong in. Don't forget: "The wand chooses the wizard."
3 Harry Potter Inspired 'Wand' Remote
The realistic looking remote-wand, is the brainchild of two British men, Chris Barnardo and Richard Blakesley, who were inspired, after seeing how enthralled the world was, with the Harry Potter series.
It can be programmed to perform 13 commands using different gestures. For example, the volume can be adjusted with just a flick of a wrist, while changing a channel can be done with a much more elaborated gesture.
4Real World Invisibility Cloaks
JK Rowling didn't invent the notion of an "invisibility cloak." The concept has existed for years in various media (most notably as a powerful item in the Dungeons and Dragons games.) But the cloak has taken on some central importance in Potter mythology, with it Harry and his friends Ron and Hermione use it to sneak around Hogwarts, the wizarding school, to create mischief and evade enemies.

8Quidditch College Sport
There is, in fact, an ACTUAL National Quidditch League and an International Quidditch Association. They even have a World Cup (like in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire). The International Rules are based on a game devised at Middlebury College in 2005, and it's now the basic model used throughout the United Kingdom, the United States and much of the rest of the world. Obviously, no magical Golden Snitches (which are supposed to be quasi-sentient, flying balls) are available, so instead individual players take on the role. Everyone is still required to run around on brooms, however.
If you want to try a new sport and run around on broom handles like a wizard sports aficionado, then you can even purchase your own Quidditch kit and play with your friends like it's a pick-up game of whiffle-ball.
