Build your own Brain Assailant

Jay writes – “For those of you unfamiliar, Thinkgeek sells a device called the “mind molestor”. the idea is simple. You hide the device in the home of someone you loathe. It then emits a beep once every 3 minutes until the battery dies or the victim burns their house down to stop the relentless beeping. Cool concept, right? Sure, but at $25 a piece its not exactly something you would want to leave behind. They dont even include a battery, But i did some figuring, and adding in a battery would just about double their manufacturing costs on the device. Thats right, This thing shouldnt cost much more than $2 to mass produce.” [via] – Link.

  3. Making it deactivate for a period after detecting a noise or light change would make it impossible to find.

  4. Just don’t use a pvc pipe for the casing.

    I made one of these in ’92 that landed me at the police station for a day explaining myself (and hopefully justifying their use of the metro bomb squad, airport scanner and a sniper w/rifle to shoot the end off it.)

  6. Does anyone else notice a ton of dupe comments at this site?

    Maybe posters are expecting their comment at the bottom of the page (like they see ar every other site on the planet)?
