Annoying Prankster Gadgets

Can you think of someone that you wouldn’t mind driving a just a little insane?

In fact, does the mere thought of agitating that special person bring a naughty smile to your face?  If you have more than a few ideas in mind, you might as well add to that arsenal of impending pranks …

 

The Think-Geek Annoy-a-tron

 


This device was invented at ThinkGeek by someone sure to be an evil genius.  They call it “a devious hide and seek game” and it only costs $9.99-$17.99.  Three different noises are produced in a random rhythm.  They are far enough spaced out, however, so that detection is not likely to occur because the victim probably won’t be able to track it down.  It will never beep less than two minutes apart nor more than eight minutes, which is enough time for those being tormented to almost forget about the odd noises, then … BEEP!  This annoying gadget allows you to adjust the sound from 2 kHz to 12 kHz or you may choose a setting that randomly alternates within that range. The batteries within this product are designed to last over a month, so make sure you choose a good hiding place!  ThinkGeek even goes so far as to suggest buying several, say, a dozen, and placing them all in different locations within one lucky person’s office.  Not that you would do something like that …

Shocking Mock Pen

 

 

This pen is definitely not a toy.  It’s not actually really a pen, either.  It is a $5.99 elaborate attempt to physically harm someone, all in the name of fun, of course.  So, keep this item away from children, but feel free to offer it to your least favorite adult.  It will definitely surprise someone, so maybe you should consider not sharing this with the elderly, either.  This gadget would be great to just leave laying around, say, with a piece of paper, maybe near a telephone, and then perhaps you call that telephone to leave a fake message with that lucky person that happens to be standing near the phone when you call …

TV-B-Gone Pro

 

 

This tiny gadget is a very versatile pranking device.  The $49.99 TV-B Gone Pro allows you to turn off virtually any television from up to 110 meters away.  It “works on 90% of TV’s in the entire world.”  It was designed to appear as a small MP3 player, in order to ensure discreet tomfoolery.  An interesting element of this product is that it allows one to turn off many television sets in succession.  You can probably conceive of a few ways to use this feature.  Restaurants, bars, airports, lobbies, and your friends houses will all be excellent arenas in which to sport this incognito plaything.  Imagine drunkenly irritating that poor bartender until he comps you free drinks for snapping at you, an innocent onlooker.  Don’t get caught, though, because it may be hard to explain how a mature adult decided this gadget was something worth carrying around.  It totally is, though …

MicroSonic Grenade

 

 

A MicroSonic Grenade should cost you about $7.99.  This relatively small price tag means that abandoning this gadget in an extreme combat situation is acceptable collateral damage.  You never know when the enemy will need to be subdued or distracted. 115 decibels is only about as loud as powerful machinery, so it won’t necessarily harm anyone, but it should give them quite a scare.  Tactical operative missions require precision, so be sure to time and place, or aim, this grenade appropriately …

Phantom Keystroker V2

 

 

Do you know someone that is rather computer illiterate and needs to be taught a lesson?  Plug the $12.99 Phantom Keystroker V2 into a USB port in the back of your prey’s computer and try to find a distant corner from which you can observe their confusion and many reboots of their computer.  You actually have a selection of settings on this device.  Perhaps sporadic movements of the mouse cursor are most likely to persist and annoy.  Maybe it’s random typing and toggling of the caps lock that will drive them crazy.  Maybe you just turn on all of these settings at once and set the timer so the disruptions are spaced far enough apart to not merit a full-scale investigation of every inch of the computer …
