Cartoon Dust Cloud generator

A device which is placed on the floor near a seated or standing person, and which contains an RFID (or other) transmitter which functions only up to a specific range, with the partner component on the person who is the controller of this device.

When the principal departs a room with haste, the proximity sensor of the device is de-activated.

When such an occurrence...uhm...occurs....the device fires off, from each of several dozen small talc-containing compressed air cannons contained therein...uhm...talc. Yes. Quite.

Each of the cannons contains both a slightly different charge and a slightly different amount of powder, and is angled slightly differently. Thus, for a brief moment, a PAHF sound is accompanied by a perfectly man- or woman- shaped cloud of dust in the air, right where the person who hurried off was once standing.

Deluxe versions include a speaker and play cartoon running sounds, such as "ZING," "ZZZFFFFFAAAT!" and "dugitadugitadugitadugita."

(tragically, inspired by a comment on Reddit).

       Excellent.   

       For people who are in a real hurry, can there also be something that generates the trailing light-wake of the Enterprise accelerating to warp speed?
