USB Missile Launcher

USB Missile LauncherEvery once in a while a device comes along that is a must-have. Oracle Alchemist points out this great one for the office.

The USB Missile Launcher can be aimed and shot from a software interface. There’s even a third party application for Mac OS X.



Here’s a video of five of these devices being controlled at once. This is the coolest office weapon I’ve seen in a long time.

It seems that these are only available in the UK, but they can also be found on ebay and at iwantoneofthose.com.

At around $50 US the price isn’t bad but all the videos I’ve been able to find make it look like the rockets don’t all shoot when you pull the trigger. Of course this would also be a great hardware project if someone were so inclined.

Thanks to Donald Burleson for pointing me at Oracle Alchemist.

  4. Hello,
    I have a new USB Missile Launcher Rocket, but I have a problem.
    I want to control 2 Rocket stations (see you video of this site), because I have a windows system. Give it a software for windows to control 2 rocket stations. Can you help me.
    Thank You.

  5. Sorry Stefan, I’m afraid I only used the standard Windows software and a freeware version on the Mac. I’m not sure how people are multiplexing them like this. It’s possible they’re writing their own software to do it.

    Keep looking. I’m sure you’ll find someone who can help you.

    Good luck.
