Geek toys you would buy if you had too much money

omg, just discovered this on the web. A laser-pointer like laser with visible beam, a range of about a hundred miles and the ability to ignite fire and burn holes into stuff. And it's just $1999.99!

What more or less useful tech toys would you like to have?

but compared to your laser-pointer, that's rather pointless.
We're open to such things, we've even talked many times about doing it with Inja, but in a way that's redundant because we can already get Erica

Those lasers things are bound to be dangerous. Anything that suggests you light a cigarette with a laser is way out of my league =P

If I had far too much money to spend responsibly I'd probably buy myself an Optimus Keyboard just because I'm a sucker for input devices.

I'd also buy the moon, which would be pretty cool to have.

For some reason, I think this would be perfect in any of our homes. :D

Awesome!

For the ultimate in intra-office war, picture linking those USB missile launchers to the USB Nuclear War hub in a way that makes the missiles fire when you push the big, red button.  8)

Haha! That's the first thing I too was thinking of. Kinda explains my current money situation, eheh...
I've never been very fond of gadgets, but... I've never been good as a hacker, so maybe a key catcher (you know, the little pluggy thing that records everything that's typed with the keyboard) could be ideal. And an evil plan is born!

Seriously... if I had that much money, I'd spend it on other things and just get a "I Never Finish Anyth" t-shirt. ;P

That's exactly what I was thinking xD
You should put the missile launcher to aim at the red button and get friends to come over. Then just tell them not to push the big red button and wait for it to happen...  >=d
