The name's Bond, James Bond. The cool, suave, debonair, British gentlemen spy is 50 years old today, after his first outing with Dr No in 1952, released on 5 October.
For 50 years old the old gent's not looking too shabby, as he continues to save the world and get the girl with alarming regularity.
Of course, Bond may be the man on the frontline, but he's always been ably assisted by that single-letter titan of MI6, Q, who provides him with all sorts of gadgets and gizmos that prove invaluable in the course of his missions.
In honour of 50 years on Her Majesty's Secret Service, we round up 10 of our favourite Bond gadgets. If we miss any out, and this leaves you feeling a bit shaken (not stirred), let us know in the comment section below.
Honourable mention: Odd Job's hat.
Yes, not technically a gadget, and not Bond's weapon either, but no list of anything Bond-related would be complete with a reference to Odd Job's lethal hat.
Can you imagine anything more evil than a bowler hat turned into a razor-sharp killing object, that can be flung with enough menace to take the head off a man? No, neither can we.
In Bond folklore it's up there with the name Pussy Galore and the 007 code name assigned to our spy hero, and fully deserving of a place in our countdown of Bond gadgetry goodness.
