Wilton Knight was a visionary. He wanted to do everything in his power to improve his world, and he dedicated the last years of his life and all his resources to founding an organization designed to promote good and defeat evil. The result was the Foundation for Law and Government, and the initiation of the Knight Industries project.
The project was highly classified: “top secret”. It was remarkable and futuristic, a first of its kind. We find out that the top secret Knight Industries project is called “The Knight Industries Two-Thousand” or “K.I.T.T.” for short.
