Art Lebedev intros shocking Vilcus finger plug

updated 01:35 pm EDT, Wed April 11, 2007

Art Lebedev Vilcus Plug

Art Lebedev Studio as an April Fool's entry unveiled Vilcus. The simple attachment is meant as a toy for those who enjoy the questionable (and dangerous) entertainment of plugging their fingers into a wall socket: two holes in the plug are just large enough for the average finger and include copper contacts that are guaranteed to make a complete electrical circuit and achieve the intended shock.

Although built with Russia's wall outlets in mind, the Vilkus also has swappable plugs for US and European power outlets and plugs into a Rozetkus power strip. The device is technically listed through Think Geek for $13 but is unlikely to ever be offered for self-evident reasons.
