USB Panic Button

ahh, the joys of working from home. I have no ned for this.

LOL! If I worked at an office this would be awesome.

Admit it, we’re all guilty of doing non-work related stuff at work. Whether you’re updating your Facebook profile, watching Youtube videos, checking Yahoo emails or possibly surfing through WowZzers! site (which you’re probably doing if you’re reading this) - whatever the diversion from the mundane reality of work, we need to be able to escape very fast if the boss looms. Not only do you need to be able to duck out of your current diversion quickly, you also need to do it without the evil eye noticing. We’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.

Plug it into a USB port and stick the button on the floor by your feet, the moment a suit comes anywhere close, just kick the switch and a suitably busy and important spreadsheet, or flow chart (there’s a selection of four you can choose from or you can create your own), will pop up onto your screen - showing you to be the diligent employee you know you’re not. A savior at the click of a button.

Was thinking the same thing. How will I explain this to my co-workers in the morning??!?!?!?!!

Weak. USB powered stripper pole is still the penultimate.

oh yeah… forgot the obligatory cat pic…

Will this work with a iPod?

Hey now…does anyone else have a blank purchase history, even if you have bought tons in the past??

Any way to get this to do anything under Linux? That would be cool.

Yes, the flip-up door IS as transparent as it looks.

Right when I was going to be productive there is a Woot-off. Sweet!

It’s the ‘Deal’ or ‘No Deal’ button.

WHy would you need this for a mac? Everyone knows they don’t use them for real work anyway.

Does this work on mac?
