Batman won’t take your phone calls, so there’s only one alternative.

This 3D printed lens designed by Dalpek can be placed over your phone’s flash, casting the Bat Signal instead of, y’know, providing general illumination. We’re assured that if the Dark Knight doesn’t show up within thirty minutes your vigilante justice is free.

You can print one out for free using the plans on Thingiverse, or you can buy one ready-made for only $6.

star wars vr

If you’re a Verizon customer and a Star Wars fan, you can swing out to select stores (while supplies last) and pick up a free Star Wars-themed Google Cardboard VR viewer as part of their #WhyNotWednesday promotion.

The viewers can be used in conjunction with the “Jakku Spy” content that’s available through the official Star Wars app, which is designed to give fans a taste of what it’s like to be a spy for the Resistance. It will be the first of nine virtual reality missions that will be released leading up to the premiere of The Force Awakens.

Verizon sent us some sample viewers, and while not functionally different than a standard Google Cardboard viewer, they are pretty cool collector’s items. Plus, if you haven’t tried one out before, you’ll really dig the VR experience that apps like Star Wars and Google Street View can provide.

Check out a promotional video below to see how the viewers work.

So you’re stuck in traffic, and you fantasize about having a superlaser attached to your car. We’ve all been there. Of course, there’s not much you can lawfully do in this scenario but wait.

The good news is that you can derive some kind of satisfaction out of this ordeal with the Death Star USB Car Charger:

When you plug in this Star Wars Death Star USB Car Charger, Grand Moff Tarkin will instruct you that “You may fire when ready,” and you’ll hear the superlaser let loose. The green LEDs flash with the firing noise, and before you know it, your anger is an asteroid belt, floating away.

It’s a Starcraft Protoss Pylon USB Charger! Need to charge more than two things? Sorry, you’ll need to construct additional pylons.

This Starcraft II Protoss Pylon Desktop Power Station is both a light and a charger. It gives you access to the great psionic energy matrix emanating from Aiur, but, in case you can’t tap into that, it also has an AC Adapter. Its 2 USB ports can power all your devices that charge via USB (provided you have the correct cable – it ships with one micro-USB cable). Note: We do not recommend you overcharge and rush with these. The power cable ain’t long enough.
