But tough economic times call for a special brand of gun I guess. Great for the Wall street dude or banker who has just lost a vast fortune and is too chicken to take the plunge off a skyscraper.

(Apparently he’s on the toilet alot) He gets points for ingenuity, putting robot legs on an iPhone, but the concept obviously needs some fine tuning. We really don’t want our iPhone to spring to life and hurl itself off the edge of the table as seen here. Well, as long as it’s not our iPhone.
