BSODomizer is a small, battery-powered device that connects between a target computer and VGA monitor, and injects a fake BSOD (Blue Screen of Death) onto the monitor at random time intervals or when triggered by an infrared remote control. The BSODomizer can automatically detect when the target computer is turned off or reset, in which case it will revert to the harmless video pass-through mode leaving the user unaware of any wrongdoing.
Originally designed as a mischievous gadget, the BSODomizer can also be used for penetration testing and video display calibration.
