cubicle warfare

This is a remote-controlled air-dart device that shoots Nerf-like little rockets and is controlled by your mouse. It was a prize gift in a Yankee-swap game at a New Year's Eve party Julia attended. It came from Marks & Spencer in London, but is apparently no longer available from them.

Here's a description and links from CNET Asia:
USB-powered air darts
Just when you thought it couldn't get any sillier with USB-powered peripherals (the April Fool's joke of a USB George Foreman grill from ThinkGeek notwithstanding), now Marks & Spencer of UK is retailing weapons of mass destruction. Operating the air dart is Q.E.D. Hook it up to your PC, and start firing with the aid of your mouse. All that's missing is a remote control for long-distance stealth firing. Pesky colleagues, bring it on.
