Fake Gadgets Deliver Shocking Consequences

by Paul Strauss

These may look like your typical cheap schlock shop knock-offs of popular gadgets, but they’re much more devious than that. You see, while they may bear a slight resemblance to a certain portable gaming system, media player and a dime-store pocket laser, they’re actually practical jokes that deliver a nasty shock.

Shocking Gadgets

Available in PSP, iPod and laser pointer versions, the $3.95 devices all deliver a tiny zap of current to your unsuspecting victim. Surprisingly, the laser pointer is actually functional, but don’t expect to play any games or music on the other gadgets. There’s also a fake car alarm remote that I came across a few weeks back too.

On a couple of occasions in my I’ve had defective electronic gear that decided to surprise me with a nasty jolt, but doing it intentionally just strikes me as plain cruel.

    I am so glad I saw this article. I will probably come across these at work. :) Hopefully I remember!

    P.S. I bet a cheaper, traditional hand buzzer would be more than enough to fool most of the people living on this planet.

    All these shock things I come across always… how should I say it… well I get addicted to them. I used my friends shock pen and couldn’t keep myself from shocking myself…. its like a drug. I try to keep away from all shocking things… especially the ones in the wall (yes I have been shocked by them once or twice.. yes it does hurt.)

    I’ve never seen the shocking toys so realistic looking. Normally you can tell the shock ones from the real ones by the first glance. Whoever invented shock toys was a genius… or just a funny guy… one or the other

  6. One of the most natural pranks played at college is to hand over a shocking pen along with a Valentine’s Day card. Then you request the member of the other sex to write down their contact number using the shocking pen. You may also present it to a teacher who annoys you while writing remarks on your assignments submitted. The price of this pen is not very high. However online purchases can be made for shocking pen and payment can be made using your credit card. It turns out to be a mutual shock. A credit card bill carrying purchase of shocking pen is really a shock. The features of a shocking pen remain the same.A shocking pen. Is perhaps one of the easiest pranks played? To keep this pen at places where the boards “use me” is adjacent. This may be next to your telephone directory besides the telephone. You always want a pen to write down something essential. You can present a medical practitioner with this pen if you are a medical representative and your doctor just does not recommend your company‚Äôs products.
