Some Joker once asked, "Where does he get those wonderful toys?" Think about it for a second: Besides enjoying a healthy night life, the Caped Crusader is probably the biggest gadget freak on the planet (our own Dan Tynan excepted, of course). As a fashion plate bedecked with nifty electronic doodads and as owner of a cave full of other cool hardware, Batman is the kind of gizmo enthusiast we can get behind.
So, in honor of the July 18 release of "The Dark Knight," the new Batman movie, we've assembled some potential crime-fighting support gear worthy of a couple of late-night sorties through Gotham City.
All you need now is a traumatic childhood incident and a lifetime of martial arts training. Don't get any funny ideas.
DISCLAIMER: PC World makes no promises that assembling said gadgets will make you a bete noire (or bat noire) to the criminal element in your metropolis. Do not attempt to jump from high buildings, fashion a Lycra outfit to wear outside the house, or--under any circumstances--put on underwear outside your pants. --Darren Gladstone
