I have one of these. Just waiting for an application for it.

It has a cheaper little brother, which is controlled by a button pad and only fires one missile. It's about $14!! You could EASILY replace the button pad with 3 telecoms relays and drive them from a PIC... 

 

If I still lived back at home, this would have been perfect to ward the little brother away from coming into my room :P
I dunno, this seems to be perfect for keeping the sales folks in the office at bay!

Now that has some potential!!!   :)

 I'll have to look at getting one of these in the states.. 

 

ThinkGeek has a similar USB one for $30 that can fire 6 meters, has 360 degree rotation and 45 degree elevation.
