Brando offers this staple of office gadgetry, the good old USB missile launcher, in a variety of guises - but this version has got to be the best.

The "new generation" of launcher now works with MSN. So, if you get one, and your MSN buddy gets one too, as well as chatting innocently over Microsoft's messenger service you can also shoot them all to hell.

According to Brando, as long as your friends' MSN missile launcher is connected, you can remotely attack them, with their own launcher, while chatting in MSN.

With the built-in webcam, you can even see where to aim and rotate and tilt the launcher for the best possible on-target direct hit.

At $50 it's not Brando's cheapest offering, but what price the joy of shooting a home-working colleague in the eye with a foam dart?
