James Bond Gadgets for your car

3 James Bond Gadgets You Can Make From an Old Smartphone

James Bond has had some badass tech over the years—wristwatch lasers, passenger ejector seats. But real life has caught up to many of the franchise’s gee-whiz gadgets. Here are some innovations that give Q’s tech a run for its money.

Bond Version: Heads-up display on BMW Z8 in The World is Not Enough

Real Version: MINI Augmented Vision glasses

These goggles are equipped with Wi-Fi and GPS, and project a stereoscopic HUD onto your field of view. Thanks to a camera array, they allow you to “see through” your car, in case any SPECTRE agents are sneaking up. They also alert you to what’s happening in your blindspots.

Real Version: IARPA’s Project Janus and FINDER

James Bond may turn to Q for his tech, but US intelligence officers depend on the Intelligence Advanced Research Projects Activity. An American 007 might get early access to Project Janus, an IARPA creation designed to recognize people in photos, even if their faces are in profile, out-of-focus, or poorly illuminated. Once 007 IDs the foe, he can use IARPA’s photo geolocation tool, FINDER, to figure out where they are or were.

Bond Version : Aston Martin DB5 from Goldfinger

Real Version: Aston Martin Vulcan

The DB5 was the granddaddy of all Bond gadgetmobiles, with an ejector seat and oil slick dispenser. But for the real James Bond, our money isn’t on the bespoke DB10 Aston Martin built just for Spectre but on one of the company’s 24 hand-made Vulcans, replete with carbon monocoque, magnesium torque tube, carbon driveshaft, Brembo brake calipers, and more incomprehensible features that sound perfect for a high-speed chase a picturesque city.

Bond Version: Bell Rocketbelt from Thunderball

Real Version: Martin Jetpack

One of Bond’s most iconic escape vehicles was real—the Bell Rocketbelt could actually keep a man airborne for up to 20 seconds. But with 30 minutes of flight time at up to 60 mph, the newer Martin Jetpack could actually be a costar, not a just cameo.
