USB Missile Rocket Launcher | Gadget Lover

USB gizmos just keep on getting better! The latest weapon in office warfare technology, the ICBM (that's Inter-Cubicle Ballistic Missile) plugs into any standard computer USB port. The control centre software allows you to control the azimuth and elevation (that's 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!

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 manager's coffee and he gives you a clip around the ear.
