A wise man (might have) once said: it’s not the gadgets that make the man, but the man who makes the gadgets. Never was this truer than in the case of MI6’s Agent 007, James Bond.
With Bond’s twenty-third film, Skyfall, we’re taking a look back at the outrageous Agent’s gadgets that wowed the public upon first sight, and have since become commonplace. Bond may not be directly responsible for their invention, but those behind the series have exhibited an uncanny ability to predict technological innovation.
The New ‘Q’ Ben Whishaw has a tall order, if the technological foreshadowing of past gadgets holds true for Skyfall.
