Facebook Shock Therapy

MIT PhD students Robert R. Morris and Dan McDuff have invented a device called Pavlov Poke that actually shocks the user’s wrist when he or she spends too much time on Facebook. Yup. Zap!

The name “Pavlov Poke” references Ivan Pavlov’s famous conditioning experiments with dogs and Facebook’s infamous “poke” feature. Clever name, indeed. McDuff says the shock is “unpleasant, but it’s not dangerous.” Whew, glad to know it won’t kill us.

The inventors admit their technology is meant to be humorous, but there’s no denying that Facebook can be a real time suck, overloading us with useless posts from friends and sometimes negatively affecting our self-esteem.

Morris and McDuff even filmed an infomercial explaining the device.

But if electric shock isn’t for you, the inventors created an alternative system: verbal abuse. Seriously. Someone will call and berate you — for a small fee, of course. It’s called Pavlov Poke (Phone Edition).
