901 Storm O.I.C. Missile Launcher - white elephant giftDream Cheeky Missile Launcher – NR Electronic Reference Device

Let’s face it, most USB gadgets are clever ideas that really just need power–this is not one of those! (A USB reading light? Really?) The Dream Cheeky 901 Storm O.I.C. Missile Launcher, on the other hand, is the perfect combination of pointless, fun, and funny. The accuracy is about what you’d expect from foam missiles, but it shoots every time, has decent in-house range, and is so easy to use my 4-year old granddaughter could do it. The camera is actually pretty decent, and you can shut off the rather serious-sounding firing alarm. Just remember it arms itself after you press “fire,” so your target will have about 2 seconds warning as it winds up. You won’t get tactical surprise once the target learns this. It’s a must-have gadget for the kid in all of us. (There’s a lot of gadgetry in there, and they probably won’t sell 10 million, so we have to be reasonable about the price point.) Now, to mount it on an iRobot Create and really patrol the house!
