Comes next year your sworn enemies, as in your coworkers, will be seeking cover as you lay a foam dart assaut to their face with the iLaunch Thunder.
It’s been a while since Brando has flexed their gadget muscles, at least in our direction, but this cubicle toy, which is sure to be deemed “useless” by your boss, has all the excitement we look for in a gadget. First off, you can control it using your iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch. Just connect to it over Bluetooth and you’ll be able to lay down fire from up to 30 meters aways. That said, it can fire up to 25 feet in almost any direction thanks to the 270 degree rotating turret and has a vertical variability of 40 degrees. As a result Brando says it can cover 1400 square feet – we’re not about to run the math so we’ll take their word for it.
If its range seems limiting, you’ll be pleased as punch to hear that it has a built-in battery that can be recharged time and time again, allowing you to place it any where your card carrying (as in gun) heart desires. Controls sound dead simple as well, allowing you to turn and tilt using your iPhone’s g-sensor, though there are the traditional touchscreen buttons in case you’re not into moving. But who wouldn’t want to “shake to fire?”
5 foam missiles are included, but we suggest you buy a few more since they’ll probably get lost, or should we say stolen. Shipment of the iLaunch Thunder will commence in mid to late December, so don’t plan on this being your one and only gift to that someone special.
