Someone obviously tried fixing it before sending it back.

This is certainly fun! It's pretty powerful too. The controller software was easy to install (on Win 7, anyway), and pretty basic to use. I got it for my 10-year-old on his birthday (along with the electronic fart master), and his mother rolled her eyes at seeing the 'busty babes' stickers on the darts, but I told her, it's just like the circus girls!

We took turn shooting with it and had lots of fun.

Tried this on Windows 7 using the provided software and on Ubuntu 12.04 using PyRocket. For both of these, the cannon could turn left and right, but was unable to move up and down or fire.

The product does not fire when used. All sounds work and it moves let and right. However the up and down function does not work. Disappointed at quality of product.

Worked great but after a few shots the air bladder broke and it would no longer fire. You can still position the cannon but that to shuts down after you attempt to fire it. Was fun when it functioned but its a bit expensive to be a USB paper weight.

I have ordered two of these two cannons. Both of them had the problem, that they did not rotate up or down and were thus broken.
In addition, one of the two items was not new and has probably been returned previously.
The sellers must thus be aware that items are not working properly......
Hands off!

In short, this cannon works as advertised. The little foam missiles launch about 10-15 feet and the canon rotation/elevation/firing is all controlled from a simple program you load on your computer.

I would suggest you YouTube this cannon. that is, before a foam dart is fired, you can hear the canon whirring/grinding for about 3-5 seconds. It's not a big deal, but if you are hoping to use this for some sort of sneak attack you may want to consider a different option.

Also, if the cannon style is not your cup of tea, you can unscrew two screws (and pop off a plastic ring) to remove the cannon facade. Once the cannon "cover" is removed, it looks like a red version of those green-ish USB missile launchers you've seen before.

Finally, I took my apart to "supercharge" it. The cannon uses springs to "poof" air to shoot the darts. The springs can be stretched some to increase the dart launch distance by 5-10 feet, although that's not too dramatic of an increase.

Anyways, that's my $0.02. It works as advertised, it's fun, but eventually the novelty wears off some.

I read about this in a bathroom reader and thought my husband would love it. It is the most hilarious thing in the world. After he was done messin with the cats he turned it on his coworkers. Best laugh ever! The software that goes with is easy to use!
