The $250 price tag for the Justice League Ultimate Batmobile however, does make it a RC car fit for Bruce Wayne.
Children can come up with some very weird-awesome ideas. Those ideas do make amazing toys, but inventions are a totally different game. British designer and inventor Dominic Wilcox started the Inventors! project to convert ideas of children into real products.
Tony might have a killer armor, but I’m willing to bet he’d feel some pain once we get 3-D printing in order and start churning out exoskeletons. Once we do get that in order and find a power source (like the arc reactor) we’ll all be superhumans.
