desktop rover

does anyone have one of these?
it's called desktop rover.
Tech Talk

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.

manufacturer is here http://www.plantraco.com/product_dtr.html

but if you're going to buy it, go to thinkgeek.com, it's cheaper than on the plantraco website.

there's no cable, it's wireless.
here's the demo
