I really miss TV shows from back in the ’80s. So many of those series had cool and iconic cars. Knight Rider was among my favorites. Fans of the show will want to check out this LEGO version of K.I.T.T.
I’ve seen a few programs take advantage of the new MacBook Pro’s Touch Bar already, but most of them are there to do something useful. How boring. What you need is to upgrade your MacBook Pro into the KITT 2000, the hyperintelligent car from the 1980s TV series, Knight Rider.
Developer Anthony Da Mota’s KnightTouchBar 2000 does just that, loading up the laptop’s skinny OLED touch panel with the chasing red light bar seen in the grille of the iconic Pontiac Trans Am.
Two of our favorite cars just got mashed up head on at 88 MPH, with Michael Knight behind the wheel of one and Doc Brown behind the wheel of the other. Yes, one ambitious fan has taken a classic DeLorean and transformed it into a mashup of the time machine from Back to the Future and Michael Knight’s classic car K.I.T.T.
I’ve always wanted my own K.I.T.T. car, but I didn’t want to do the whole fake my own death, change identities and get a face change thing. Luckily, now I don’t have to thanks to ThinkGeek who are offering a USB charger that looks like KITT’s voicebox from the ’80s series Knight Rider.
I know you can hear the Knight Rider music in your head now.
There were a lot of cool cars in 1980s TV shows and movies. We must have been obsessed with cars in that era, because you don’t get these sort of iconic rides anymore. Ralph from Brothers Brick has created some awesome homages to TV and movie vehicles of that era and they look amazing.
One of the things you learn in the world of geekdom is that any time you slap some horizontally-chasing red LEDs into something, it’s instantly transformed into Cylon technology. But I always thought if you did it to the front of a vehicle, it’s a reference to Knight Rider’s K.I.T.T.
Remember K.I.T.T., the talking computerized car from the old 80’s TV hit Knight Rider? Now K.I.T.T. (actually just a full-scale replica) can be yours if you’re the winning bidder in this eBay auction.
Built by a dedicated fan in Toronto (I guess Canadian’s love David Hasselhoff too,) the car took over 4 years and $40k (CAD) to build.
