Office warfare, USB missile launcher

mislau_alt1.gif

USB Missile Launcher lets you take office warfare to a whole new level. The USB-controlled missile launch system is 16cm high and features three foam missiles complete with stability fins. The supplied Windows software lets you rotate the launch platform up to 180 degrees and tilt back up to 45 degrees before hitting the big red fire button, which is accompanied by a cool sound effect.

The supplied software is very basic and doesn’t keep track of the launch platform’s movements, so you can’t easily go back to a previous target. A gadget like this is crying out to be modified and some bright people have rewritten the software to add features such as tracking the launch platform’s position and adding joystick compatibility.

Fans have also written Mac and Linux versions of the controller software. If your budget stretches further, the Web-cam Missile Launcher lets you acquire targets using the built-in webcam and even lets friends control your launcher over the web via MSN Messenger!!
