Build your own Batmobile and learn about electronics with this new Kickstarter project
Unless you were born into a billionaire family or ready to make terrible things to make money, chances are you’ll never own a full-size Batmobile replica. Alternatively, you can support a project that will give you a pocket-sized Batmobile with remote control functionality and a crash course in electronics, coding, engineering, and several other skills. CircuitMess has kicked off its latest Kickstarter campaign, this time offering an AI-powered Batmobile that can roam your home looking for crimes to stop.
The entire kit is disassembled and you will need to assemble the parts yourself to build the Batmobile before moving on to the coding part of the build. CircuitMess says the kit is designed for anyone seven years of age or older, and comes with a series of instructions that will teach you how self-driving vehicles work, how to code a microcomputer, how computers track objects, and how to develop your skills. own computer vision algorithm.
To get your hands on a Batmobile kit, you can commit to Kickstarter with the $ 99 tier which includes the full kit and a controller. At the $ 139 level, you will receive gyroscope and accelerometer modules, air pressure sensor magnetic snap-in module, white LEDs, and humidity sensors for Batmobile construction. More levels offer even more bonus coins, like a $ 5,400 package that gives you everything you need to build an entire fleet of Batmobiles.
The Kickstarter has exceeded its initial fundraising goal of $ 15,000 in just two hours and has over $ 267,000 in pledges at the time of writing. If you’d prefer a different kind of Batmobile that’s ready to flatten out crime right out of the box, there’s an option for that as well.
You should also check out Nibble, a previous CircuitMess project that’s great for kids and adults alike. The Nibble is a DIY handheld game console that plays classic games, and you can even code your own games for this neat little handheld.
With The Batman arriving in theaters next year, merchandise from the Matt Reeves-directed film has started to go on sale. Right now, you can check out an all-new Hot Wheels collectible Batmobile that recreates the iconic car on a smaller scale and even features a little Pattman inside.
