ThinkGeek has dialled the prank-o-meter all the way to 11 with their TV Poltergeist widget. Nothing tricky, just a box and an LED on a wire that you can poke out of hiding places. The widget will turn the television on or off every 5 – 20 minutes, 24 hours a day until the batteries (three AAs) run out. Sounds like hours of freak out fun. US$12.99
Perfect for interrupting lame sporting events, obnoxious video games, moronic sitcoms, and poorly written movies! Using the TV Poltergeist couldn’t be any simpler. Hide the TV Poltergeist somewhere in the same room as a TV and turn it on. Aim the LED toward the victim’s television. Sit back, keep a straight face and enjoy the chaos.
