VoodooTorture Posted July 29, 2009 Share Posted July 29, 2009 Darren, the guy that sits in the cube next to me, got this cubical door bell type thing called the cubicaller and attached it to the front of his cube. Everybody that walks by apparently loves to press the button (even when he is not in his cube). While amusing at first, this quickly gets annoying when you're the guy sitting next to him and you get to hear it go off all day long. Sooooooo, I decided to get him back by making the "Annoy-O-Darren". The Annoy-O-Darren is basically a keychain toy that has buttons and plays sound that I hooked up to an Arduino which is then attached to my computer. When someone presses the button on the toy, the Arduino senses that the button has been pressed and then calls a web page with php code that basically sends and email anytime it is accessed. I have it setup so that it emails my coworker a text message informing him that someone has pushed the Annoy-O-Darren. The Keychain Toy bought from Target for $3.99. The Annoy-O-Darren installed with a sticker that I printed out informing everyone that walks by what the device does. The Arduino setup - unfortunately this is the best picture I had. It's been up for a few days now and is a big hit with everyone except for Darren who is currently plotting his revenge. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
