The days when you could reasonably expect a bit of peace and quiet in the garden are long fading. Not only are you vulnerable to radio controlled tanks, cars and fake garden gnomes, but you’ve also got to keep constant lookout for flying instruments designed to make your life a misery.
Take this Flying Water Pistol for example. It’s not enough that you can be buzzed and harassed on your own lawn by quadcopters, spy copters and the like, now there’s something which can actually cause you physical discomfort. The 3.5 channel helicopter has a built in gyro for extra stability (oh joy!), plus a range of 33 feet which is probably just enough to soak you and make a clean getaway.
The craft is rechargeable from USB and has built in LED lights, but we’re not told how much water the tank holds… hopefully it’s only enough to annoy, not drench. But mark our words, larger models will be coming. Oh yes they will. Priced at $49.99.
