Mini RC Helicopter Is Fueled By USB

As if there weren't enough USB distractions out there already, Brando is now offering a mini RC helicopter than can be refueled from your laptop or desktop.

Beyond that, it appears to be a fairly standard 3-channel helicopter. The way I see it, a USB device should involve the computer in more ways than just a power source. It certainly wouldn't be the first RC device to do so. Still, if you are looking to do something other than work at work, Brando's helicopter isn't going to break the bank at $US40. Then again, you could forgo the USB functionality and LEDs, saving yourself a few bucks in the process. [Brando]
