The ThinkGeek USB Snowbot
"Color changing scan, eerie Snowbot sound, articulating arms...a ThinkGeek exclusive... Last December, as we were settling down for a long winter's nap, we were visited by two robots from the future! They spoke to us and now it is time to share their message. There's good news and bad news. The good news is there are tons of really cool robots in the future. The bad news is they are divided into two factions, are waging war against each other, and have ""downgraded"" humans to pretty much servants and food. We quickly smashed the robots with hammers, and swore to devise a way to save humanity. Before we destroyed the robots, however, we were able to learn two things. 1. Each army of robots uses a different color scanning light (red or blue); 2. We have no idea which side is in humanity's best interest to win. So we built the Snowbot - a small, winter-themed beacon…and perhaps our only hope. Powered by a simple USB port, the Snowbot has a scanning light just like the robots from the future. You can change the speed of the scan, turn on/off the scanning noise, and (for future protection) change the scan color (red or blue). So no matter which robot army storms your home or office, a quick flick of a switch and you are rooting for the invader's color. Hopefully then the robots will just make you a servant and not an appetizer. Good luck and happy holidays. The ThinkGeek Snowbot Features: USB Powered (for great justice!) Scanning LED Robotic Eye Rate of sweeping is controllable via knob Selectable LED Robotic Eye Colors (Blue or Red) Authentic Snowbot Sound (on/off switch) Rotating, articulating metal arms Coiled (12"") USB cable extends to 30"" ThinkGeek Notes: There is a chance that the artificial intelligence which created the robot armies of the future originated from a massive connection of small USB desktop devices plugged into computers connected to the Internet. Please don't blame us if, by attempting to find a way to save humanity, we have inadvertently doomed it. Thank you."

Unfortunately, you've got bills to pay, so you punch in every morning and punch out every night feeling a little more dead with each passing day...
