James Bond And Chitty Chitty Bang Bang Were Created By The Same Person

Whimsical 1968 film Chitty Chitty Bang Bang is best remembered for its nutty flying car and catchy songs.

Every Secret Agent Wannabe Needs A Quadcopter Belt Of Death

You could probably argue there are worse offenders, but there’s no denying that James Bond’s Thunderball jetpack is definitely up there in the pantheon of ridiculous 00-gadgets. Tinkerer Rodger Cleye recently tried to put a more realistic spin on the concept, and the result is this still-ridiculous-but-fully-functioning quadcopter “belt”.

Sony Xperia TX Review: The Bond Phone Just Makes Me Sad

James Bond movies have always done an amazing job at making me feel great. They’re always so enjoyable, so fun, so cool.
