If you find yourself in trouble you can always use your phone to dial 000. 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. Available from Etsy seller Solid3D for about eight bucks, 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]
