JAMES BOND GADGETS
Added on: 13th Feb 2015
In Thunderball James Bond’s famous wristwatch allows him to
determine the radiation levels of his surroundings by checking one of the
hands. The Breitling watch was picked up for £25 but was sold by
Christie’s in London for more than $160,000
In Diamonds are Forever, James Bond used his voice changer not just
as a spy but to avoid having to take calls from people he didn’t want
to talk to.
Although every kid who ever watched Superman wished they had x-ray
vision it wasn’t until 1999 in the movie The World Is Not Enough that
James Bond finally came out with his super fly x-ray shades.
TAPE RECORDER CAMERA
Although these days having a multi-purpose gadget isn’t really that
cool anymore what with everyone having an I phone in their pocket,
in From Russia With Love (1963) it was one of the coolest things ever.
Before the x-ray wristwatch their was the x-ray polaroid camera in
License to Kill (1989). It seems that seeing through matter is a critical
ability for distinguished British spies.
CLOTHING BRUSH COMMUNICATOR
Appropriately concealed as a lint brush, no one would suspect the fact
that it basically functioned as Bond’s telephone.
Basically a circular blade attached to a string, James Bond used a
yo-yo saw in Octopussy to kill the MI6 agent named Vijay.
Although never actually used by Bond (in fact it was actually 007 who was
tracked with the device), the lint tracker is an ingenious idea. It only
activates when placed somewhere on a person’s body, like in their pocket
and even if they find it they’ll just throw it away thinking it’s nothing
more than a piece of lint.
If you see James Bond rolling around with something as unassuming as
a toothpaste bottle you can bet your money it will do something
