Now if they could just add video conferencing features, every office in America would buy one.

we'll need to keep them in order; so they won't escape.  Some sort of Nerf herder perhaps?

There have been DIY remote NERF robot gun thingies for years now.

"Kids's dream?"

I think cubicle warfare can be taken to the next level.

I'm ready to be armed.

Cubicle war has changed. It's no longer about departments, work ethics, or who buys the donuts. It's an endless series of proxy battles fought by office clerks and remote-controlled nerf guns. Cubicle war- and its consumption of time - has become a well-oiled machine. Cubicle war has changed. ID-tagged office workser carry ID-tagged nerf weapons, use ID-tagged gear. Nanomachines inside their bodies enhance and regulate their abilities. Genetic control. Information control. Emotion control. Business control. Everything is monitored and kept under control. Cubicle war has changed. The age of deterrence has become the age of control... All in the name of averting catastrophe from toys of mass distraction. And he who controls the office... controls history. Cubicle war has changed. When the office is under total control... Cubicle warbecomes routine.

Will it fire and lose all its nerf bullets like kids do and become a useless toy?

They will just take up the ink-jet printer (or razor cartridge) model. They toy is $29.95. The replacement NERF rockets are $6.50 each or $59.95 for a dozen. The toy regularly goes on sale. You will occasionally find a $5.00 off coupon for two 12 packs. Costco/Sam's/BJ's will have 36 packs of rockets for $72.99

That's not remotely the ink-jet printer model.

If so, the toy+darts would be 29.99, and the darts alone would be 31.99, meaning it's quite literally cheaper to just buy a new unit than replace ink.

Now all you need are Nerf Aliens crawling across the ceiling and a Nerf Hudson screaming, "What do you mean, THEY cut the power?! They're animals!!!"

I sent this to my family with the email subject "the future of feline harassment". Thinking I might want one of these just to sit on the PC desk if you catch my meaning...

I'm sure that Nerf robots with radio remote control and cameras will come eventually.  Maybe they'll even know when they've been hit with a missile so you can have meaningful combat.  I envy the little boys and tomboys of the future =)

Although...I'm sure that I'll be able to play Little Miss StarCraft Stalker around the cube farm in the not-so-distant future =^-^=

Can these be soaked in  flammable liquid and ignited at launch ?

If so take my money please.
