Shockolate Vault asks if you want pain or chocolate. Chocolate, please!
By Dan Moren, Macworld
Okay, do we have any readers in the UK? Could they please to explain to me what the hell is the deal with that country and
people? I thought perhaps the bizarreness of
was a one-off, but now we have the
and my spider sense is tingling. Then again, it might just be the lasting effects of the
electricity sent coursing through my veins
by an otherwise ordinary-looking jar.
The idea behind the Shockolate Vault is simple: put in something you want to not have access to, such as sweets, cigarettes, or your car keys, and set the timer. If you try to open the jar before the timer’s up
. Great for kids (seriously, keep this thing away from your kids, or people with pacemakers for that matter). All for just £10 plus shipping.
Admittedly, the actual use of this device doesn’t seem as intriguing as my original conception: a way to keep your precious chocolate out of the hands of crazy soccer hooligans. The Shockolate Vault might work in Britain to help with self-restraint for those sweets, but not here in America. The first time someone gets shocked by this sucker, they’re just going to curse, pull out their Gloc, and blow the thing away. Nobody shocks
. You got that?
