Sonic Warfare Against Videogames!

Ok, so maybe it isn't as dramatic as my title would lead one to believe, but a Korean company says they've developed an audio cue that, according to them, will prevent obsessive gaming habits by subconsciously forcing gamers to stop playing.

"A Korean venture start-up has developed an inaudible sound sequence, which it claims can prevent obsessive use of online games, thus giving hope to game addicts."

My only problem with this? If something is "inaudible" then it can, by definition, NOT BE HEARD!
Sadly they haven't posted any samples of their un-hear-able sounds, so check out their claims here:

In the meantime, I'll use a mosquito ringtone to force myself to stop doing things, since the mosquito is actually a "hear-able" sound...
