Another useless gadget: USB missile launcher





SgtGarcia
It's time for another useless gadget. Actually its really fun to play with Razz
This thing is some sort of toy-missile launcher connected to a pc via usb. It comes with software to control it with your keyboard.
Check this vid where some guy is targeting other people in his officie. This thing would be great at lan parties Evil or Very Mad

Its really possible to confuse some people with this sort of things, would be great to combine it with a webcam to create something like a auto-targeting-room-defence-system Razz

Useless? Maybe. Fun? Yes.

Well, it seems like I could build it. But it looks like I don't have to, as a quick google found this:

I think I might just have to buy one myself!

You had to spoil my fun didn;t you Crying or Very sad

Very Happy You have to admit that it would be a kind of cool fad Very Happy

^Well, yes. Practicaly speaking, it has no advantages over simply throwing missiles at people. (Except that you give geek-oriented compainies money, wich is good.)

hmm, I want to get one and make it shoot farther and better. It could make a very effective weapon around the dorm Razz

Great Idea:
Combine this with the DIY robot kits that are controlled with a laptop computer. You could make a robot that goes around and shoots missiles at people!
