DIARY: TOP GEAR - Slam Man

Grrrrrrr! Those arrogant agency bastards - they avoid your calls, ignore your ideas or they’re just plain rude. And as for the clueless clients, well, the less said of them, the better.

Sometimes you just want to kick them right in the bloody ... (stop right

there - ed).



Suffice to say we all know what we want to do when the smug gits tell

you that ’your ABCs weren’t what we were expecting’, or ’your

clickthrough rate doesn’t match our aims’.



But now there’s a way to vent your frustration that doesn’t result in

being removed from the schedule (not to mention society as a whole).



Slam Man can take as much as you want to dish out and more. He’s made of

a tough polyethylene plastic and has eight target LED lights connected

to a built-in computer. The lights illuminate to offer a variety of

sequences to which you can respond with crafty jabs or (more likely)

flailing haymakers.



The computer records your timing and scores. Slam Man can even be

customised to suit your height and weight of punch. He also comes

complete with a training video, gloves and a great feature where his

eyes get brighter and brighter the more your punches begin to hurt.





Slam Man: pounds 300
