The 20 most outrageous and fantastic James Bond gadgets of all time, in GIF format

“Dentonite” Explosive Toothpaste — License to Kill (1989)

Compared to Sean Connery, Roger Moore, and Pierce Brosnan; Timothy Dalton’s 007 didn’t really get that many super-cool gadgets — but this one was almost makes up for all of it. It’s essentially a tube of plastic explosive concealed inside a not-so-subtle tube of “Dentonite”-brand toothpaste.

X-Ray Shades — The World is Not Enough (1999)

Pierce Brosnan had some of the coolest gadgets the Bond franchise has ever seen — mostly because CGI and special effects were so much better during his time. These X-Ray shades are a perfect example of that

Laser Polaroid — License to Kill (1989)

This might be one of the cheesiest moments in all of James Bond history. He and Q almost get fried when CIA agent Pam Bouvier unknowingly tries to snap a picture of them, but instead shoots a STUNNINGLY REALISTIC laser beam right at their heads.

Rolex Submariner — Live and Let Die (1973)

The 1973 Rolex Submariner was one of Bond’s most versatile gadgets. Not only did it have a spinning watch face that works like a tiny circular saw, it also had a ridiculously powerful electromagnet that was capable of deflecting bullets. The electromagnet ends up saving Bond’s ass at the end, as it allows him to summon the previously-mentioned shark pellet from afar — which he then shoves into the villain’s mouth, causing him to explode.

Trick Briefcase — From Russia With Love (1963)

This thing was basically the Swiss Army Knife of briefcases. It was equipped with all kinds of hidden compartments and tricks, including knives, a rifle, and even a tear gas dispenser. Bond didn’t think much of the contraption when it was first offered to him, but M urged Bond to take the case with him nonetheless.

Tazer Phone — Tomorrow Never Dies (1997)

This concept phone from Ericsson had a ridiculous number of different functions. It was a stun gun, a fingerprint scanner, a lock pick, and even a flip-open remote control for Bond’s BMW 750iL. It seemed crazy back when the movie was released, but with the right accessories, you can actually do all this stuff with a modern smartphone.

Jetpack — Thunderball (1965)

I love this one because it’s just so bad by today’s standards. Is it just me, or does it look like it’s made from a bunch of dryer vent tubes and an old go-kart seatbelt?

Underwater Jet Pack — Thunderball (1965)

This one was pretty sweet, but let’s be real here — why would you go to all the trouble of putting flippers on your feet if you’ve got something like this strapped on your back?

Avalanche Ski Jacket — The World is Not Enough (1999)

Avalanche protection systems do exist in the real world, but they’re typically just backpacks with two big air bladders on the back — which isn’t nearly as cool as this jacket that inflates to form a cocoon around you. Q branch was onto something with this one.

Alligator Submarine — Octopussy (1983)

This is definitely the most brilliant thing Q branch has ever dreamt up. Period.
