Shocking alarm clock

Clinton made a shocking alarm clock, literally, he writes – “The idea for this project came to me about a year ago, it was right around the time I made the homebrew handheld shocker. I wanted to make something that I could shock my unsuspecting friends with and yet have it still be very annoying, and that’s how I came up with the idea for the shock alarm clock.” [via] – Link.

  1. This is a really bad idea. Someone is going to get hurt badly. I hope you have deep pockets to pay the lawyers you will need to defend yourself from the suits.


  2. And if that does’t do the trick, there’s always the old “thumbtacks in the binocular eyepiece” gag, and don’t forget “razor blade on the cellphone”.

  3. Disposable camera as novelty zap toy? No!

    *Especially* after that picture with the sparks. :O

    It’s easy to find a cheap zapping pen or other toy for cheap that you can use the guts of – it’ll still be annoying, but with no lengthy hospital visits or manslaughter charges.
