Women have shoes, makeup and clothes. Men we have cars, sports, and gadgets. So with that in mind I introduce you all to OfficialManCard.com‘s newest monthly series called “ThinkGeek Manly Product of the Month” Every month ThinkGeek.com will help officialmancard.com with a new product that is designed to make man’s life easier…or just more fun. Before I continue I want to personally thank Shane Peterman at ThinkGeek.com for all his help.
This month we are reviewing the MSN USB Rocket Launcher this little bad boy retails for $49.00 and can fire up to three foam darts. BUT WAIT!! That’s not all, it can do. It also features a webcam and if your buddy has one you can take control of each others rocket launcher and fire on them. Yes my friends cubical warfare just went digital, no more spit balls across the office. The software was super easy to install, and the device is super easy to use. The only drawback to this product is that it requires the use of MSN messenger to use with another person, but seeing as they need one too its a small inconvenience for the sheer fun that this little gadget brings. Another issue I have is the price of 49.00 each, while defiantly worth it, it may be a bit pricey for younger people. The cam is great and clear, and the device is very sturdy and not “cheap” feeling. So overall I love this product, but it does have some minor flaws which prevent me from giving it a perfect 5 beer rating. I give the USB MSN Rocket Launcher 4 out of 5 beers. I highly recommend this for the home or office, either way you will have a “blast”…pun intended. For people on a budget ThinkGeek has you covered as well with this USB Rocket Launcher which retails for a very cool $24.99, this launcher lacks webcam, and takeover support…but it can fire twice the distance of the webcam version. To see the USB MSN Rocket Launcher in action check out the quick video below as I demonstrate the bad-assness it brings. If you want one of your own be sure to head over to ThinkGeek and order yours today.
