Captain Cyborg creates human bat with Reg baseball cap

Internet Security Threat Report 2014

It's come to our attention that the media's favourite cybernetically-enhanced human - Kev "Captain Cyborg" Warwick of Reading Uni - earlier this week demonstrated an echolocation hat for blind people on the Beeb's The One Show.

Nothing remarkable about that, you might think, but check out just whose hat had the honour of bearing the prototype:

Yup, that's one of our old vulture logo baseball caps, and no mistake. Suffice it to say, we're not going to take this provocation lying down, and are as we speak preparing an apparel-based counterstrike. Watch this space. ®
