Submission + - New Keyboard Accessory Shocks Users When They Try To Go On Facebook (informationweek.com)

cartechboy writes: Two Ph.D. students from MIT have created a keyboard accessory, the Pavlov Poke, that shocks you every time you go onto Facebook. The project comes as a result of the students finding the waste over 50 hours a week combined on the social network (instead of working on their dissertations) So the pair created an Arduino-based keyboard hand-rest that shocks computer users who spend too much time checking the social network. The hack is "intended to generate discussion" — not actually turn into a business.
