Regardless if the technology had been used earlier in the film, a machine of that magnitude and complexity most certainly had not.
It was mentioned at some point that Bruce was working on some mysterious machine. It's not necessarily the appearance of the machine that bugs me, it's more the circumstances surrounding its ambiguous construction by Bruce in such a short time.
I'm sort of nitpicking here because I didn't find it to be a huge deal, but really my only complaints with The Dark Knight relate to the aspect of "keeping things close to the chest." (and thus, I really didn't like how they handled Gordon's fake death and the ambiguity behind Bruce's construction of the sonar machine)
