    for those who aren't familiar, it's a remote controlled vehicle, supposedly the guy made it got the idea from the nasa mars rover.

    it can play laser tag, you can attach a camera to it so you can view it on a TV. And get this, you can control this thing over the internet! you can make scripts for its movement. so technically you can control the rover at home while you're in the office. it goes for $40.

    think geek got some great stuff. i don't have anymore room on my desk at work. i already have a fish tank, some 14" luminglass and a 19" monitor that takes a lot of space.
    i got a ZipZap car on top of my monitor too ;f
