Turn Your Smartphone's Camera Flash Into the Bat-Signal

If you find yourself in trouble you can always use your phone to dial 911. Or you can reach for this compact 3D-printed lens that turns your smartphone’s camera flash into the Bat-Signal, summoning someone who can help but who also has a way cooler car than the police do.

Designed by Dalpek, the 3D model is available for download from Thingiverse for free, but you’ll need to supply the 3D printer. If you don’t have one, it’s also available from Etsy seller Solid3D for about six bucks.

Given the lumens limitations of your smartphone’s flash, you probably won’t be able to shine this Bat-Signal onto the clouds above your city, more like a wall on the other side of the room. But if you find yourself at a boring party one night with no easy escape, Batman will surely be more than willing to help you out. [Etsy via The Red Ferret Journal]
