Default The Annoy-A-Tron

Best. Gadget. Ever.

http://www.thinkgeek.com/gadgets/electronic/8c52/

It is a tiny electronic device, whose sole function is to emit an annoying electronic beep in random time intervals from 2 to 8 minutes, with an embedded magnet - making it easy to conceal in office/cube environments.

I placed one under my co-worker's desk this morning, and I heard it beep randomly throughout the day. I was disappointed that my co-worker either didn't seem to notice or react, but this is a kind of torture that requires patience. As I was getting ready to leave, it beeped one final time and she made a very annoyed face.

"What's wrong?" I asked.

"There's this random beeping coming from this general area," she said, motioning towards the area where I had placed it. "I don't know what it is or where it's coming from, and I can't tell because it happens only every so often. It's driving me crazy and I haven't even been at my desk most of the day."

I could barely contain myself, and casually suggested that maybe it's coming from the nearby thermostat. The Annoy-A-Tron will run for 3-4 WEEKS on a single battery. The only question now is... how long do I let it go on?

My wife, in an uncharacteristically devious moment, suggested I let it go for another day or two, then deactivate it for a week or so, until my co-worker forgets... and then activate it again.

Best 10 bucks in entertainment value I've spent in a long time.

I might have to get one of these. I already know which co-worker I'd use it on too!!

If you do, go ahead and replace the included battery right away. The included battery only lasted a day.
