We've brought you stories of text messaging as a potential life saver and a killer but we reckon a suggested use of SMS, from of all places Romania, is just about the silliest yet.

Inventor Vasile Prisca has invented a device that catches unfaithful spouses by sending a mobile text message whenever it detects more than one person in the marital bed.

The device works by sensing when someone heavier than a man's wife jumps into the sack. It sounds daft but Prisca used it to unearth evidence of infidelity in the run up to his own divorce. ®
