Turn your phone into a blinding banshee

To make sure you won't miss a call, the "UltraClear" ringer has a flashing strobe and 95 decibels.


Almost exactly a year ago we posted an item on the "Sonic Bomb" alarm clock, which turned out to be just the first in a string of eardrum-killing devices for those who engage in the sport of extreme sleep. Now there's another gadget that applies the same principle to the telephone.

But the understatedly named "UltraClear" doesn't stop at sensory overload of the auditory canals. In addition to its extra loud ringer, a "bright flashing strobe" is activated whenever it detects an incoming call. So while its reaches a full 95 decibels, the device will scare the hell out of any living thing in the house by imitating a runaway ambulence siren. (Not recommended for epileptics.)
