USB Missile Launcher Reviewed (Verdict: Nobody's Getting Any Work Done)

How fun are these USB Missile Launchers? Very. A single launcher comes with 3 foam missiles, a three foot USB cable, sound effects, and a Windows XP control program. Once installed, you control the cannon with either your mouse or the arrow keys, and fire with the space bar.

We kinda wish they came with more missiles, since three is just going to get you maybe a minute and a half worth of pleasure. Nobody likes it when you've shot everything off after 90 seconds. But at $35, they're not too expensive. Buy a few and watch your productivity soar. Does soar mean go down?

DISCUSSION

I have a pair of these (not the one in the film, but grey ones with white darts), ordered from Australia before they came to ThinkGeek. It's pretty cool. Definite proof of my geek cred.

It makes for very interesting meetings in my office as I playfully aim at guests and ask them for their "unvarnished" opinions. Combined with the USB self destruction hub, it makes for a great impression.

Very cool, these.
