The dope cats at our home-away-from-home thinkgeek.com sent us a very special little toy that I have had a ridiculous amount of fun with… the Eviltron ($10 for 1, $18 for 3… get 3!). Close cousin to their wildly famous annoy-a-tron, this tiny device is the smallest… most perfect… evilist device ever created. In a nutshell, the Eviltron has one function… to randomly (and almost perfectly) create a small whisper of a creepy ass sound. After which is shuts the hell up just long enough for people to stop trying to find out what’s going on… then creates another discreet sound (different from the previous one). I know this is really difficult to truly put in words… but this badass little quarter-sized piece of tech is AWESOME! For fun we kept placing this bad-boy around the office to see what the reaction would be. We saw fear… that chick in accounting nearly brought to tears… a gloriously pissed off IT guy (he couldn’t figure out what the hell was going on)… and too many people who immediately knew we were involved (are we that obvious?). If ever there were an item perfect for driving that asshole Carl in accounting into the funny-farm… it is the Thinkgeek Eviltron. Seriously though, get the 3-pack… best $18 you’ll spend since that “gold” necklace you bought for Amy in the 5th grade.
Here’s a bit about it straight from the peeps at Thinkgeek:
There are a lot of scary things out there. But here at ThinkGeek Mindlabs(TM) we think there are certainly few things scarier than one’s own imagination. The human mind can play devious tricks on itself, especially when given a small amount of outside stimuli to work with. Your thoughts can easily lead you into a maze of paranoia and put you into a very uncomfortable state of heightened awareness. That odd noise that just came from the attic or the “face” you just saw hovering for a split second outside your window – these things can really stir your thoughts. So, we used this simple principle to create our newest mind toy, the ThinkGeek EvilTron.
This fiendishly small device features six creepy sound choices perfect for frightening your “friends” and co-workers. Simply choose your favorite sound (or use the random mode), place it in a dark hiding spot and watch the madness begin. Perfectly suitable for dorm, office and home use. Or try putting it in someone’s car – that gets them every time.
