Super hero comics are full of super hero stuff that makes sure that the good guy always wins. Batman is the super stuff god, with a fully equipped bat-mobile, wrist bands full of tools and of course his super hero buddy Robin.
There are gadgets and gizmos on the market today that can make you feel like superhero too. Only a brain-iac knows how most of them work, the rest of us are just happy to have them around when we need it.
A light that flicks on when something, or someone, moves in its range. Motion sensors are one of those home protection devices that most home owners have no idea how it works, but are thrilled when it does. This is like the normal guys equivalent to having x-ray vision, or being able to see in the dark. I don’t think that even Spidey can do that.
Wireless Dog Fences
If it were a penguin fence than Batman would have one for sure. A petsafe wireless containment system magically makes it very uncomfortable for your dog to leave the property. Without the use of any pain causing death rays. A pet fence is great for keeping the super pets under control. This is even better than Wonder Woman’s magical lasso at keeping the animals in check. The possibilities with wireless dog fences for a super hero are endless.
You’re on it all the time, but do you really know how the heck it works? Imagine if a super hero got an iPhone, and then got online. Who the heck would save us from the bad guys? No matter how big the bat sign looms over Gotham City, I would bet that Batman would be more interested in his Facebook page. Well the internet may make you and I feel like a super hero, but we need to keep It out of the hands of our super heroes.
I am completely baffled by Bluetooth technology, but very happy to have it in my life. Think about what would happen if our super friends were Bluetooth equipped. No more bat signs in the sky, or special wrist band radios, they could all just sync together to lay a blitz attack on whatever anti-hero comes their way. This brings a whole new level to the Wonder Twins uniting.
This one has been around for decades now, but still makes me scratch my head. Cold food goes in, hot food comes out. In only a couple of minutes. If super heroes ate, they would use a microwave oven. I wonder if their alter egos do? Maybe Clark and Lois do at home.
Modern comics of course incorporate almost all of today’s doo-dads into their stories, but the classics pretty much remain in the dark ages. Take a look at the stuff you are using everyday and think about how modern technology is starting to give us powers that most of these super heroes would envy.
