New gadget: Air Force device scavenges electricity

July 1, 2010

The U.S. Air Force, which often employs some of the world's most cutting edge technology, has another cool new device. It's relatively simple looking with a simple job. Known as a "bat hook," the high tech gadget allows Airmen to tap into any nearby electrical wire when they are short on power or have an emergency need for more electricity. They simply power up and move on with their mission.

Discover Magazine highlights the Bat Hook in an article titled: "How Batman Would Steal Electricity."
