Computer Guided Foam Missile Launcher

So, I got this for my birthday from my Mom. You hook it up to the computer and can control where to shoot the missiles. This apparently can be accomplished from any sort of remote device and can be guided by webcam.

Pretty cool honestly. The original plan was to take it to work and use it to bombard my cubicle mates. On reflection, however, my wife pointed out that there is a huge theft problem at my office, and such a cool gadget would certainly be swiped the instant I turned my back.

Well, maybe I'll hook it to my home computer and use it to drive the cat crazy. Also, it would make good terrain for miniature wargaming.
