My lucky ball and chain

Saw this link on Slashdot:

A red digital display counts down the “Study Time Left” and the device beeps and unlocks when the time expires.

The prison-style device weighs 9.5 kg (21 pounds), making it difficult to move while wearing it.

Incentive to study, or S&M toy? You be the judge.

The retailer doesn’t mention it in the ad, but I have to wonder … does it explode if you try to take it off?
