Study Ball forces you to study

Concentrating on work isn’t always easy, but for a student that would rather be out socializing, it’s close to impossible.  Some students are committed enough that they can manage to concentrate on school work and ignore the nagging urge to slam the text book closed and go out.  Well this Study Ball which is made to look humorously like a ball and chain can help the not so dedicated students stick to their studying goals.

This isn’t just a timer, it actually shackles to your leg until the set time is up.  On the shackle itself it lists how much time you have left, so you can count the minutes down until you’re finally free again.  The ball weighs 20.95 pounds, which is possible to move, but still a bit on the difficult side.  So if there’s an emergency, you can still pick it up and run.  It can’t be set for over 4 hours at a time and they suggest that minors not use this without adult supervision.  It runs on 3 AAA batteries and will cost you 85,45€ or about $115.
