Frivolous blog posts are traditionally reserved for Fridays. But lets have one on a Monday for a change.
Over the weekend I moved into a new house. in a few of the rooms there was an odd device plugged in to the sockets. I had no idea what it was.
The label on the back yielded no clues. It just referenced a website that specializes in indoor water features.
So I posted a picture of it on Twitter and got some humorous responses:
Andy Barr from 10Yetis suggest it’s Mini-stig. That shouts “vrooom” when you walk past it.
And PaulH says it could be a wall mounted TV for tiny people.
Excel_Expert says it’s an air freshener and the different lights are for different fragrances.
There were also a few boring “CO2 detector” (albeit one to terrify children according to getwired) and “Motion Sensor” suggestions.
My favorite was GuyGregorys suggestion that it’s a Stormtrooper.
Ed89 almost managed to convince me it was a device for monitoring your power usage, and the colored lights indicate how acceptable your current usage level is.
