Holy App Store! This Real-Life Batman Uses An iPad To Control His Turbine-Powered Batmobile! [Video]

Casey Putsch has done something so incredible that even Bruce Wayne would approve: he’s not only designed and built a turbine-powered Batmobile, but he slapped an iPad on the dash to help him with navigating through the streets of Gotham.

Putsch claims this is the “world’s first turbine-powered Batmobile,” which seems like the sort of maker’s boast that only Batman himself could lay claim to, but then you hear this thing revving up its Boeing turboshaft engine and you realize this is not a car designed for stealthy approach.

The iPad in the center dash is used by Putsch as an avionics system, as well as to display GPS information.

It does raise a question, though: would Batman be an iOS man? I tend to doubt it: Batman likes slapping his logo on everything, and only Android really allows for that sort of customization. Then again, he is an outlaw vigilante… he probably jailbreaks.
