USB Missile Rocket Launcher

Keep your territory secure with this great USB Missile Launcher. USB gizmos just keep on getting better! The latest weapon in office warfare technology, the ICBM (thats Inter-Cubicle Ballistic Missile) plugs into any standard computer USB port. The control centre software allows you to control the azimuth and elevation (thats side-to-side and up-and-down for non military people out there). When you have the target locked in your sights, press FIRE and the computer launches a foam missile, complete with whooshy missile sound effects!You know a gadget has really caught on when hackers start producing modifications for them. Not satisfied with the bundled Windows 2000 / XP control panel, there is unofficial support for the Apple Mac, and for Linux. Or you could do what we have done here in the office, and tape a web cam to it. It certainly keeps visitors on their toes when they see a missile launcher tracking them around the office!The missiles are launched by strong springs and have a range of about 3 metres, but as the missiles are nice safe foam, you are unlikely to do any damage unless they land in your managers coffee and he gives you a clip around the ear. Computer controlled missile launcher Motorised control system, pan 180 degrees, elevates 45 degrees. Three foam missiles PC software CD containing Radar type control panel Mouse or keyboard controls Computer generated missile launch sound effects Suitable for ages 5 years+ but includes detachable parts, so supervision is recommended for younger children.
