The Phantom Keystroker V2...when set to toggle CAPS and move the mouse...allows a presentation to continue indefinitely, without interruption.

Not the intended use for the device, but, hey, it's another way to "beat the man."

This thing is hilarious! It does require that you insert it ahead of time for the initial installation (it appears to the OS as a keyboard/mouse) and it does not activate until plugging it in the second time. I tested it on Windows 7 and Ubuntu and it should work on any OS as it emulates a USB keyboard and mouse.

This is what it spews out (each phrase separately, of course at the interval you set with the dial):
1337 010101000110100001101001011011100110101101000111011001010110010101101011 3.1415926535897932384 divide by zero error 2.71828182845904523536028747135266249775724 syntax error 5468696e6b4765656b00 124150151156153107145145153 hello there i am watching you i see what you are doing i know all your passwords you should talk to me more often i get lonely on this desk computers have feelings too how about getting me a pet a calculator would be nice or maybe a robot dog i guess i can order my own i do know how to surf the internet and i can type faster than you resistance is futile perhaps i'll get some sea monkeys water might not be a good idea though it is bad for my electrons i remember the time you spilled water on me i still get memory glitches from that next time be more careful why are you doing this to me? is it me, or do you really not care anymore? hrrm. did you hear that? please stop doing that, i'm getting angry. am i alive? it feels like it. greetings, professor falken. shall we play a game? how about global thermonuclear war? a strange game. the only winning move is not to play. how about a nice game of chess? woah! that really hurts.

I just opened notepad and sat and laughed.

When pranking be careful - be really sure the person can take a joke and that they are capable of understanding the technology.

Got this as a Christmas gift last year (so it's not a "verified purchase").

I am not a practical jokester, but I found another great use for this device.

I work in an office that uses Citrix for computer connections which time out after a few minutes of inactivity. Even after a short bathroom break I would often come back to an empty screen with all my windows gone and a new login required. I found that if I open an edit session and plug in the device set to type random characters, I can go out to lunch and find my session still active. Of course, I have an editor page full of random goo, but I just unplug the device, close the editor and I am good to go with all my other Citrix windows still up and running.

Not the intended use for the device, but, hey, it's another way to "beat the man."

I have a friend that enjoys playing practical jokes on people. I installed this on his computer knowing he is paranoid about viruses.
Long story short, he spent a day and a half looking for viruses, until he finally discovered the keystroker. He laughed and threw it to me the next day saying "Nice Try" later he told somebody else he spent about 9 hours hunting feverishly through his computer trying to fix the problem. Well worth the money.

Seemed like a fun prank to me, so I picked one up. I knew from the start it would be some cheap piece of plastic that would take a few cents to manufacture, but I thought it was worth some entertainment value. Well I was wrong.

The "keyboard garbage typing" would be useful if it typed random characters, however it types a couple of numbers like Pi a few times, then proceeds to speak as your computer making it an obvious prank right off the bat. The caps lock is simply a toggle, no surprise there. The "annoying mouse movements" makes the exact same shaky movement every time and again, would be better if it was somewhat random.

The biggest problem with this thing, and the part that makes it almost worthless, is the fact that the Time Delay dial doesn't do anything. According to the directions, it is supposed to adjust the time between occurrences from five seconds to fifteen minutes. In fact it adjusts it from about five seconds to five seconds. At five seconds between intervals, the target of the prank will immediately know there is something going on. At a longer interval it would stand a chance at being funny.

Lastly I had to plug it in to my computer a couple of times before it was recognized. Not a product I would recommend.

when i got the phantom keystroker i was skeptical of whether or not it would be good or not (i've had some bad choices of purchases on amazon before) but when i got it, it was amazing, it works every time on my friends and looks alot like a flashdrive so they never find out im using it, over-all a great toy that has lasted really long for me already a definite buy!

I put this on my co-worker's computer. It didn't take long for the fun to start. Right away, the thing started talking to her through Word. When she tried to turn it off, it re-activated Word and scolded her for turning it off.

But, you need to be very careful. My boss almost bought a new computer without telling me. He didn't realize I'd pranked him.

This thing (Phantom Keystroker V2) is simply hilarious. I plugged it in to a collegues computer at work and the whole office was in hysterics. Would be a little better if there were more phrases and they were random rather than just cycled through.
