From this weekend’s Dispatch comes news that Columbus’ Battelle Memorial Institute has built a grappling gun, similar to the one Batman uses (but much bigger).

The aluminum gun fires a titanium hook 100 feet high and as far as 60 feet away. For climbing missions, a rope or ladder can be attached to the end of the hook.

Read all about it.

So that’s where he gets such wonderful toys.
