Zap your employees when they procrastinate with this contraption

Be nice to your boss – one day they may just make you wear this insane anti-laziness, anti-procrastinating zapping contraption. London-based designer (and probably sadist) Ling Tan ‘envisioned a world where such words as procrastination and laziness don’t exist in anyone’s vocabulary.’ So what did she do? Tan came up with a contraption that zaps you if you’re not working hard enough.

Brainwaves are read using an EEG reading headset and then interpreted. Lucky if you’re working hard. Unlucky if you’re not. This creepy device delivers electric shocks if they do not detect a ‘state of focus’. Imagine the amount of zaps these contraptions would dish out on a Monday morning. Ouch!
