Goofy, geeky novelty gift that costs $20-30? Always a fun addition to under the tree.

Goofy, geeky novelty gift that costs $180 plus shipping? ... Not so much.

Sorry, love. Your preparations for world domination will have to be put on hold.

I looked at it and thought "meh." It would be fun for a little bit...but $180 worth of fun? Now if I could rig it so it could do work around the house....

"Hey, hover craft, change that light bulb that is in the ceiling a whopping 22 feet off the ground."

"Hey, hover craft, get me a drink."

Reminds me of my voice controlled R2D2 - it was good for a laugh or two the first few times we used it. Now it is sitting in the closet collecting dust.

Hence $20-30, but not $180.

My take on GRRM's latest...I'd be honored if you'd take a peek. No spoilers, I promise.
