Hahahahahaha! I just saw a review of this app on NY1. I don't have an iPhone, but it might make one more attractive to me. It's an app where you can point your phone at someone/thing, push a button, and PEWPEWPEW! It makes sound effect and a visual of shooting lasers at them.

What makes this funny to me is many years ago, I had an old Chevette. On the dashboard of the Chevette, mounted with velcro, was a small black box with four buttons and a speaker -- each button made a different sound effect of mass destruction. Gunfire, lasers, whistling bombs, missiles -- if someone cut me off, I had the fantasy of having front-loaded heat-seeking missiles give them hard justice. I actually got pulled over by a cop who thought it was a radar detector (they're illegal in Virginia), and he laughed when I demonstrated that, no officer, it's not a radar detector, it's a frustration-venting machine. :D He asked me where I bought it, and said he wanted one. He did warn me that it did look like a radar detector, so I might be pulled over again for it, but he sent me on my way.

This app wouldn't work while I was driving (I'd have to hold the phone up to catch images of those I wish to blow up) but I still think it's hysterical.

John the Bear has one in his car, too. Making a cop smile is a good thing!

I bought that thing over 20 years ago and have no idea what's become of it, but I *have* seen keychain versions since then. If I ever come across another one of similar ilk, I'll certainly post about it!
