The best of it all is their new Vilkus adaptor. It was developed for people who like touching the electrical circuit with their own fingers.

Many people find pleasure in this unusual entertainment - they normally use U-shaped fragments of bare wire, paper clips or even usual metal forks. All these objects are unreliable and easily broken.

All household sockets are designed so as to prevent any finger abuse, while this adaptor lets to stick fingers very easy. For Brittish and American sockets - also not a problem.

At first I thought it was a SMPS power supply for delivering 12 volts DC to a cellphone recharger car adapter.

I'm not kidding. I actually have one like that.

Perhaps they should stick with designing tape dispensers, they do pretty good at that.

Looks pretty small to be a DC adapter.
