What now looks vaguely like a tiny Gouald naqueda reactor used to be a $5 laser-tag-ish sentry unit. The best thing about this thing is it's totally guttable so I can make it into something custom. AND it has a small motor in the base so it rotates.
Somewhere along the way this will get something cool put in it. They're so cheap I'm planning on picking up a couple more and sending them out to geeky friends once I figure out what to put in them. They're just too cool and cheap not to snap up.
