Most Painful Toy Hack Ever

Posted by jøn

In honor of the release of Nuclear Energy Powder, we decided to Nuke ourselves with a hack conceived by Aaron.

Aaron hacked a Mindflex toy brainwave reader to electrocute people if their brainwave frequency got too high (by concentrating). We took outputs off of the 5 level LED indicator, put the outputs through a transistor/resistor/relay circuit to give 2 levels of high voltage through an electric shock circuit right into the user's arm.

The result is hilarious. Aaron, Eli and Jon alongside our friends over at SMBC Theater test how long they can last before getting shocked by the device. You can watch the video below:





If you want to make your own (and we have no idea why you would want to), you can check out the how-to here!

I design slot machines - so I've studied a lot about behaviorism. What you've created is an evil bio-feedback device. Don't get me wrong - I think it's totally cool and I would like to tell you how to make it better.

Plan #1 - introduce a secondary stimuli when the shock is applied. Like a door bell - after a while the door bell alone will cause a reaction w/o the negative stimuli. If you want to be pure evil, then make the sound a car honk. That way when the person is in traffic and someone honks their horn, you give them a heart attack.

Plan #2 - Have the subject pet a furry stuffed animal - like a kitten when the shock is applied. After a while you will create a general anxiety about all furry animals. This will negatively impact their relationship to their pets - such a nonspecific anger and resentment.

Plan #3 - Manchurian Candidate. Continue to talk to the subject, when the shock is applied carefully interject a key word - such as "apples". Keep doing this but make sure the subject is unaware of your motivations. Then in a planning meeting start bringing up the word apples. This will cause general to specific anxiety.

If you want to be truly an evil a-hole. Then I will tell you the ultimate mind F*&k. When the subject reacts to the secondary stimuli, reward the behavior. So if a person jumps at the sound of the doorbell, then immediately reward the person by buying them a soda or giving them a candy bar. You will greatly exasperate the negative behavior to the point of a phobia.

Just some helpful suggestion .. enjoy

I think this would be better if you you raised the shock threshold a bit and applied the electrodes to someone else. The 'shockee' would then have to distract the person wearing the mind reader in order to avoid getting a shock.

Just a thought - loved the video
