USB Panic Button

Funny stuff

This one is for all of you who uses computer at work and always aware of boss hiding behind your shoulder. Playing online games, watching videos on youtube, surfing web sites or doing some other activities instead of working is one of the corner stones of relations between employees and employers.

I’ve seen lots of software that helps undisciplined workers by hiding all windows and opening some dull word document or something like this. Now we’ve got a hardware realization of such applications – USB Panic Button:

USB Panic Button

This funny USB device looks just like an emergency button from movies or cartoons. Military looking body painted with alternating black and yellow stripes, transparent plastic cover and big red button – just like missile launching button from war movies. By pressing it you will bring to front a window with boring office document (or any other image you want) and hide all incriminating windows.

Absolutely useless at home and essential for office this gadget is sold for approximately $20.

    Lol…If it were going to be useful, it would be a little more inconspicuous..your boss may think something is up with a big ready emergency button next to your pc..

    Where do you get these? This would be the perfect gift for my bf!

    For a device designed to bring up something inconspicuous on-screen, it looks like a whore in church.

    I have one and there rubbish, it brings up a jpg of a program and it can’t be tricked or anything into calling something else up. Unless you can reprogram this I’m not happy with my purchase!
