Does God punish sin? Well, we don't know about God, but this gadget certainly will.
A US based tech company named Pavlok has managed to raise over $250,000 on its crowdfunding website to produce the gadget that would give you a 225 volt shock (significantly more painful than dog collars, which give up to 6 volts of shock). It will happen only if you visit Facebook sitting in an office or any other content which you shouldn't be visiting.
How it works? Well, Pavlok wristbands will connect to your computer and phone via Bluetooth and shock you if you go on time-wasting websites. Further, the wristband will also shock you if you press the snooze button on your smartphone quite number of times in the morning.

Basically, the device comes with exposed metal contacts on the inside of the wristband, that release a miniature electric shock when you fail or ignore a task.
However, one can configure the shock intensity anywhere between 17V and 340V. Currently, the gadget is available online for $100 (Rs 62,00 approx.) and the Pavlok is expected to be launched globally by 2015.
