More than anything else, James Bond is known for three things: women, cars, and gadgets. Which is funny because Ian Flemming's novels about the rebellious MI6 secret agent didn't feature the wildly fantastic weapons and electronics found in most of the Bond movies. That's why the recent reboots with Daniel Craig, an attempt to bring the series back to its roots, is heavy on hand-to-hand combat and light on tech. Still, we would be remiss to discount the impact and influence all the cool toys Bond has used over the years. Where else would we see someone not named Bruce Wayne using an arsenal of devices that included jet packs, watches with built-in lasers and saws, and phones able to remote control real vehicles?
In celebration of the 50th anniversary of the 007 film series and the release of the 25th installation, Skyfall, we decided to take a look back at some of the illest tech ever used by Bond. James Bond.
