Technology can be used for the strangest things

Check out some of the most strange inventions technology can bring to you:

  • Electromechanical teenager repellent - a device that makes annoying high-pitched noise designed to be audible to teenagers but not to adults, thus aiming to solve the problem of unwanted gatherings of youths and teenagers in shopping malls, around shops and anywhere else they are causing problems
  • Anti-flatulence underwear - airtight underwear with a replaceable charcoal filter that removes bad-smelling gases before they escape

  • Alarm clock that runs away from you - an alarm clock that runs away and hides if you don't get out of bed on time. When the alarm sounds you can snooze one time. If you still don't wake up, Clocky will jump off of the bedside table, and wheel away, mindlessly bumping into objects until he finds a spot to rest. You'll have to get up and out of bed to silence his alarm.

  • Software that detects cats walking across the keyboard - When cats walk or climb on your keyboard, they can enter random commands and data, damage your files, and even crash your computer. This can happen whether you are near the computer or have suddenly been called away from it. PawSense is a software utility that helps protect your computer from cats. It quickly detects and blocks cat typing, and also helps train your cat to stay off the computer keyboard.
