Awkward device

Modern devices are comfortable, easy to use and stylish. But not Awkward device.

This product has been designed from the ground up with no consideration for your practical and emotional needs.

Awkward device will embarrass you. It will be annoying and difficult to use.

But don't despair. Awkwardness can be an entry into uncharted social encounters that enable you to break with etiquette and laugh about the absurdity of social norms.

So what does it do?

This miracle of inconvenience is still in development, but I can tell you that Awkward device is a small box with 9 switches, a buzzer and a flashing light. It has a very handy external 9 volt battery. The buzzer and light are each controlled by 3 switches. When one switch turns the buzzer on another turns it off, and the first switch no longer turns it on.

It’s a little unpredictable and might be hard to switch off. But it will make the perfect gift for the person who has nothing.

Awkward device will be available sometime in the 21st century.
