This is a computer that is engineered to shake or vibrate when it is processing. The vibration can be tied to CPU usage

the purpose is to help people feel good and understand that the decisions they make can have an impact

       Beyond [norm]'s astoat observation, how exactly does a vibrating computer induce calm or teach personal accountability?

       Astoat. Boy, you really had me there. I gave it some thought and I believe you must have intended astute.   

       Besides, my computer already does this.

       Well, NOW I am. Thanks a lot [Max]. Just what I needed when I'm trying to get some work done while my computer shakes and vibrates.   

       I hope you feel good that you made an impact.
