Yay or Nay Wednesday – USB cannons for office warmongers…or infantile jokers

Camilla Chafer Tech 2 Comments

Last week I asked you about Smores makers. Are they the noughties fondue set or yet another single-skilled food appliance destined for the dusty cupboard. Nay, you said, send them off to that cupboard. And if you still don’t know what a Smores is, the picture was a clue. We don’t live in the USA either although it is a splendid place to visit. Especially Disneyland.

This week I’d like you to take a look at the USB Rocket Cannon. Powered by your computer you can point, aim and fire three foam cannons up to 10 feet. Yes, it’s infantile but isn’t it an awful lot of fun? Aim it at the boss when in the office or at the cat when at home, just don’t be surprised if you get your just desserts. So do you want one? Yay or Nay and why?

    Well actually i did look at the picture, it appeared to be some kind of biscuit (with marshmallows?) but that’s about all i could surmise. I suppose i should have googled it…now that i have i can kind of see what they are, but what are graham crackers? Didn’t mean to upset anyone, i just wanted to indicate that foods that are not available all over the world might sometimes require a wee bit of explanation… i mean, i wouldn’t expect you guys to understand our local specialities such as chocolate fish!

    A most solid Nay. In a time when I have *far* more important things to plug into my remaining USB ports (cupwarmers and mini christmas trees for example) the idea of giving up another to a cannon which won’t cause permanent damage seems a little pointless. Besides, my cat would kill me if I tried it!
