Don't let your office nemesis see this

The "Phantom Keystroker" is the ultimate prank.


We almost didn't post this item because we wanted to keep it a secret from our co-workers. That way we could use it on them every day between now and April 1.

The "Phantom Keystroker" is the ultimate prank for office sadist, a devious little device that's sure to make any cubicle dweller go postal (not that it takes much). Once discreetly plugged into an unsuspecting colleague's USB port, it will randomly move the cursor around and type in dummy text whenver it feels like it, Gizmodo says.

Unfortunately it can't be controlled remotely. But it does have a way to time the actions so you can gather other office mates for an impromptu viewing of the pending meltdown.
