This is designed to be used for students to help them study, but I can think of some far better uses for it. It has a 4 hour max timer and won’t unlock until the timer is up. The ball weighs about 20 lbs which may be a little light for most grown men. This could be perfect for any guys into medieval bondage scenes. I know I could have some fun with it.
Concerned mums and dads set the desired study time on the Study Ball and attach it to their child’s ankle.
A red digital display counts down the “Study Time Left” and the device beeps and unlocks when the time expires.
The prison-style device weighs 9.5 kg (21 pounds), making it difficult to move while wearing it.
It cannot be locked for more than four hours and comes with a safety key that allows the manacle to be opened at anytime.
The ball and chain costs £75 and is sold online at curiosite.com.
The website says: “Quite often, students who are having problems concentrating tend to get up every ten minutes to watch TV, talk on the phone, take something out of the fridge, and a long list of other distractions.
“Were they to dedicate all this wasted time to studying, they would optimise their performance and have more free time available.
“Study Ball helps you study more and more efficiently.”
Designer Emilio Alarcon came up with the idea after a friend likened revision to being in jail.
I got this from a follow on Twitter. I just can’t remember who you are. Sorry 🙁
