Gadget Geek's Guide to Gotham

By The Gadget Geek

Here are the gadgets you need to make you feel like the Dark Knight himself.

What’s great about Batman is that he straddles the fine line between gadget aficionado and luxury-loving playboy. You don’t need to necessarily be an orphan, have a butler, live in a mansion and lead a double life as a vigilante to feel like Batman; all you need are a few good-looking gadgets and a deep grudge against criminals.

If we were leading a double life, we would definitely be a professional Playmate photographer. This job would bring us around the world to not only rub shoulders with the hottest girls but also bring pesky villains to justice internationally. “Wayne who?” they would say! While we traveled, we would pack our digital camera and accessories in this gorgeous Fuji X-Pro1 Globe-Trotter Case. The only downside is that there were only 12 made and they are about $9,000 each, but that’s the price you pay when you want to look your best.
