ScreenStone

A couple of weeks ago ScreenStone, a crystal that – according to the literature – may or may not shield me from bad juju, landed on my desk. ScreenStone is “scientifically proven” to be slightly more effective at making you happy than a placebo crystal when stuck on your monitor. I got a copy of the science that proved this. It looks at the effect of ScreenStone on “Sick Building Syndrome”. It showed people were happier when they were given a ScreenStone, though they were almost as happy with a placebo. This can be explained by what is known as the Hawthorn Effect – which states that the more attention researchers pay to workers, the happier they are. If you were to eliminate this from the research, you’d probably be left with zilch.

OUR VERDICT

If you are the type of person who reads your horoscopes in the newspaper, and believes them, this could be the product for you. If, however, you have a firmer grip on reality, then save your money.
