Shakespeare bust holds hidden Bat-secret

DVICE said:

What first appears to be an innocent bust of The Bard turns out to be a sneaky switch as you tilt his head back. Hey, Willie, whatever happened to "to thine own self be true?" You might recognize this from the old Batman TV series from the '60s, where Bruce Wayne hid his secret switch to gain entrance to the batcave through a bookshelf.

Shakespeare's hidden switch controls just about anything electronic, such as lights, windowshades, music or a trap door. But holy mega-meltdown, Batman! We need to be wealthy as Bruce Wayne to buy one of these — the limited-edition artifact is selling for a steep $315. POW!

I have no idea what I would hook that up to, but if the budget allowed for it I would definitely have one of those in the house! I remember watching the old Adam West Batman shows and the tilting-head bust made an appearance in most of the episodes.

But at $315?! :eek: I guess millionaire Bruce Wayne could afford it.
