We’ve all heard of good luck charms, but what about an IT Protection amulet? This is a real item offered by Kanda Myojin, a Shinto shrine in Akihabara, Tokyo, Japan. It consists of a processor-shaped sticker that needs to be affixed to the compromised computer and a tag that is meant to be worn around your neck. If all is completed as instructed, this amulet should be able to ward off all malicious computer programs, including viruses.
Fortunately, you won’t have to shell out hundreds of dollars like you would a fortune teller, just around $9.19 USD from the shrine’s official website. Unfortunately, the shrine does not ship internationally, so you’ll have to ask someone in Japan to acquire one before shipping overseas. If you want something just as interesting and actually functional, then look no further than the Circuit Marker, a pen that lets you draw with conductive ink.
