This review has nothing to do with PalmOS but it makes just as much fun though it is not very useful: The Brando USB Misslie Launcher.
The device is shipped with a paper target, 3 missiles and the software for the PC. Once the launcher is plugged into an USB port, Windows recognizes it as a “Human Interface Device” and installs the needed drivers automatically. The software – which is Windows Vista ready – for controlling the launcher can also be installed onto an USB drive so that you can carry the device with you.
How the device acts and how the controlling software works can be expressed the best way by a video:

After you have hit the “Fire!” button you will hear an audio warning for three times until the missile launches.
Instead of using the software + mouse to control your launcher you can use the keyboard for:
- moving (left-right-up-down): arrow keys
- fire: space
Even though the rockets are build out of foam plastic, please do not aim or shoot at humans or animals!
In my opinion this little toy is a great way to skip some time when it is getting boring – e.g. in your office
You can buy the launcher for 35 USD at the brando shop:
