This week's gadget is the Tech Neck mobile device holder. Who could come up with such a weird gadget? You want me wear that crazy thing around my neck? Well, relax, it's not a real product. It's true, the Tech Neck Device Holder does not exist. It's a Prank Pack designed to fool the receiver into having to thank you for a really stupid gift. But, the box is empty so you can put your real small-sized gift inside. There's also a “You've been pranked note” inside the box. This empty box costs $8, expensive since it's a job, but the company did a great job of making it looks like a real product with models using the device in all sorts of situations. Even the copy on the box looks real. Amazon link: https://tinyurl.com/yb6vuzrx

- Get the Prank Pack Tech Neck on Amazon
- Company website: (They're $7 here and there's a wide assortment. 10% off if you sign up for their emails)

Leo says it's a real thing and it's called the Eduro Lounger, $4.99. And when you can get a device like this, you know we're in late stage consumerism.
