Here is a great way to get back at all those non-cubers who have ever tried taking one of your puzzles. I found this item while browsing ebay for a shock pen to prank my German teacher with.

Pretty sure they used to/still sell them at spencer's, since I remember hearing about these a while ago as being sold at spencers.

Furthermore, the dimensions say 50mmx50mmx50mm. That's quite a small size for a cube! :O

Does this work just by touching the cube, or do you have to press specific stickers? If it's just that you have to touch the cube, it'd be hard to hand it to people! :lol:

Mine just came in the mail and holy $#!+ does it shock! 5 of the sides have regular stickers with letters of the alphabet, the sixth side has metallic stickers that I imagine conduct the electricity. Two of the sides twist to about 45 degrees or so. Once you twist to the point where it won't twist anymore, it gives a huge shocking jolt. My finger is still a bit sore from it and it's been about 2 hours.
I swear, I don't need a difibulator anymore, I could just use this cube! For under $3 bucks including shipping, it wasn't a bad deal.
By the way, it's only a little bit smaller than a standard 3x3 cube. It's much bigger than a key chain cube.

I have bought some of these and sold at competitions.
They work well, if your hand is wet. Most of the time, if someone tried it, they just dropped it after the shock.
But still, there where some people (who had dry hands), who does not feel anything...

Unfortunatelly, you can see it is a fake cube from far...
But still it is fun. :)

I know mine works. I am _not_ going to try it again to see if it still works. Perhaps on some unsuspecting people...

I was a fool when i bought my first one:
I have opened the box and started to search where can I add the battery...
Then i realized very fast, that the battery is included... :shock: :oops:
