Review: The Magnetic Forcefield Tech in Batman: Gotham Knight

Batman: Gotham Knight has been hailed as a collection of Batman short stories in Anime form. I enjoyed the highly stylized treatments of batman as a robot, a living shadow and a man, but I was surprisingly delighted to see the amount of high technology featured in one short in particular, Field Test, where Batman repurposes a satellite's failed magnetic gyroscope prototype into a bullet deflecting force field, shown in this video.

Ultimately, the field test goes wrong, and the tech is shelved for working too well, but I won't spoil the ending for you. Batman: Gotham Knight takes place between the last movie and the one coming out shortly, and this animated flick is a good hold over until it hits. [Gotham Knight on Amazon]
