Deskbound office workers will recognise the situation. One person does something thoughtless, another over reacts. After that, things get totally out of hand. But what is an appropriate response to leaky personal stereo headphones (scissors?) or an overly loud telephone manner ("Shut your face!")?
How about, perhaps, a salvo from your very own USB Missile Launcher? Yours for £29.99 from i want ONE OF THOSE - though in our view, your turned-on bosses ought to buy them for you all, taking the company's ongoing HR initiative to the next level, incentivising you as part of its leveraged outreach.
Want to know more? Well, this is what the gadget site says:
You simply use your mouse to control the launcher which rotates and tilts as you zero in on your victim, that, despite being deeply childish, is immensely satisfying. The Missile Launcher fires its three foam missiles sequentially as you hit the 'Fire' button, and though collateral damage is minimal, the fun factor is exceedingly high. We just love USB toys.
* A pivoted base for directional control.
* Three foam missiles.
* A software CD.
* Load the software and a control panel appears on your computer screen, simulating a radar tracking screen.
* Use your mouse or keyboard to control the 'control panel'.
* A click on 'Fire' when your target is in sight releases one of the three missiles.
* Rocket launching sound effects when you fire.
* Suitable for ages 5 years+.
* Requires a USB port.
* Size: 20 x 14 x 12.5cm.
Is it worth £30? Probably not but that doesn't stop us from fancying one like mad. You, though? Join us in the HEXUS.community and tell us, if you've got the front, that you really don't want one of these toys just as badly as we do!
