Device Curbs Facebook use Via Shock To Wrist
The 'Pavlov Poke' monitors how much time you spend online
Posted: Aug 23, 2013 2:56 PM CDT Updated: Aug 23, 2013 8:43 PM CDT

Do you spend way too much time on Facebook? Cut back with a new device that shocks users who overindulge. Developed by MIT students Robert R. Morris and Dan McDuff, the "Pavlov Poke" monitors your computer usage and actually delivers a shock to your wrist through the keyboard rest if it finds that you're online too much. The pair estimates they once spent as much as 50 hours a week on Facebook, and developed the device as a way to cut back.

"It monitors application usage and if you spend too much time on a particular website or application it will give you a shock," McDuff said in a promo video. "The shock is unpleasant but not dangerous." Of course, the whole thing is meant to be somewhat of a tongue-in-cheek joke. The duo previously attempted to cure themselves of their Facebook addiction by hiring strangers to call and berate them when they spent too much time on the social media site, according to Tech Crunch.

If someone needs a device like that to get them off of Facebook, they have more problems than they realize!

Perhaps I do but it's a lot of fun. It's a great way to meet up with old friends. Ironically I joined facebook the same year that I had my high school reunion and I made friends on facebook with a lot of school friends that I haven't seen since high school.
