Here’s a particularly sneaky gadget, just in time for April Fool’s Day. Disguised as a random circuit board (admittedly not the most discreet choice), plug the Phantom Keystroker into your victim’s USB port and it’ll either intermittently blurt out random text or take over the mouse, depending on what you set it to.
You can even set the intervals between actions, allowing you to sit back and watch your co-worker spending the whole day running virus scans and eating the keyboard in frustration. Pick one up from ThinkGeek for about £13.
