Foot-activated boss button enables gaming at work

Wired's sex columnist Regina Lynn noticed that the Stealth Switch being sold ($24.99) at ThinkGeek might work well for diddling the workday away without fear of the boss figuring out why she's so happy all the damned time.

The product enables slackers to shirk their duties in complete safety, thanks to a bevvy of features designed with gamers in mind:

"Quickly install the software and plug the hidden foot switch in (it goes either between the keyboard and your computer, or just into an available USB port) and you are safe. It hides in the shadows and just a light tap of your toes will let it work its magic. Based on your preferences, it can hide the current window, hide all windows, or hide all windows except for specified windows. Not just minimize, mind you, but totally erase from your screen. The Stealth Switch can also mute the sound, hide the taskbar, hide the desktop icons, and password protect the restore function. When the coast is clear, another quick tap and you are ready to frag in peace."
