The device has left netizens wondering and some have taken to Twitter and shared hilarious memes while others compared with the show.

Another user wrote, “I thought Raj and Howard had already tested this .#BigBangTheory,”. "Is this inspired by howard wolowitz invention from the big bang theory?," a third user wrote.
