Bond-age gadgets that you’ll love to own

 

With everyone at a craze over Bond’s Skyfall, there’s something we teach-heads (and any other amateur) gets amazed by: The gadgets on every Bond Movie. While some of the featured gadgets may be too far-fetched and out of this world. We at SA Vibe will be helping you get your hands on real-life spy tech, available from your nearest retailer and online store.

 

Sony Cyber-shot TX20

 

Nothing less than full-HD, 3D still and sweep panorama with CMOS sensor and touch screen. This is sure to blow Timothy Dalton’s lame spy-spectacles away with 4x zoom and 14-megapixel stills. Very Bond – R3699 IC

 

Spy Pen HD Camera

Report back from top-secret enemy briefings using this 720p, audio-enabled ballpoint. With a 8GB microSD card offering enough record time collect intelligence, and you can also take stills of key conspirators. R500, red5.co.uk

 

Paraben Recovery iStick

 

This deep-cover USB stick will recover and/or steal data from an iPhone without even needing to hijack the phone. Simply insert this drive into your target’s PC and it’ll grab their iTunes back-up files, showing deleted texts, photos, files and location info. R3000, paraben-sticks.com (also available for Windows and other devices)

 

Listen Through Walls Standard

 

With this contact microphone you can uncover the assassination-and-diamond-related plots of mister Wint and mister Kidd in the room next door. This device coverts inaudible vibrations into clear sounds. And so handsome, too! R1500, onlinespyshop.co.uk

 

Sigma 120-400mm DC APO OS lens

 

Compatible with both Canon and Nikon cameras, this lens offers Sigma’s OS System (Optical Stabilization) allowing handheld photography even in low-light situations. R7999 IC

 

Olympus TG-1 Extreme

When you’re in as many scrapes as 007, its no good having gear that buckles as soon as you have to engage in the slightest little bit of parkour-based combat. This cam is shockproof to 2m, crushproof up to 100kg and is also ready for underwater and arctic ops. R4999 bidorbuy.co.za

 

Eristoff Vodka

 

It took 200 years in the making to create Eristoff Vodka. That would explain why Bond familiarised himself with another brand of sorts from the moment Connery requested a ‘martini, schaken not stirred”, half a century ago. Distilled as part of a three-step process and charcoal filtered to create a clean, smooth taste. Which basically means that whether it’s being enjoyed neat, over ice or mixed, Eristoff will deliver the unique crisp taste from ‘The Land of the Wolf’. This thus explains why Eristoff is one of the fastest growing vodka brands in the world and fifty years of heavy drinking and he’s (Bond) still the best spy in the world. R129 at Leading retailers.

Sony PlayStation 3 SlimLine

 

Who thought Bond had the virtue or time to play a game or two? We found this ‘revamped’ design of Sony’s legendary PlayStation 3 fitting for James, er Bond, per say. With a HD Blu-Ray player, internet ready and built in Wi-Fi, HDMI and USB ports what more could bond crave for?  R2999 NW

 

Asus TF600 Tablet with keyboard dock

While Bond spends most of his time in air and on foreign territory, the old way of relying on calls for updates on assignments is no more. That’s where the Asus TF600 comes handy with its built in NFC sensor to enable another alternative for data exchange. Plus it runs on Windows 8 with its powerful nVidia Tegra 3 Quad-Core processor 1.3GHz so Bond doesn’t get left behind. R8999 IncredibleConnection

 

Sony Xperia T Smartphone

We love the fact that Apple enthusiasts have to take a seat here as Bond is still loyal to its Sony brand even though it’s now running on Google’s Android. Its 4.6” HD Reality Display powered by the Mobile BRAVIA® Engine for razor sharp clarity is perfect for a clear image of his target. The 13MP fast capture camera that goes from sleep mode to snap in just over a second ensuring no excuse to missing a snap of the villain and Full 1080p HD video recording capabilities and a 720p HD front camera for capturing all evidence in the  highest quality. PNA

 

Solarmonkey Adventurer Charger

 

Not that 007 might ever need this, but you never know. Mum might turn on him and he’ll be left all one in the world with a villain on the loose…

 

If the above is ever likely to happen, this device comes handy in charging any device through conserving and sourcing energy though its 2 solar panels with an output of 3 watt max. R1199 Cape Union Mart

 

 

 

 

The Seamaster Planet Ocean 600m SKYFALL by Omega

 

The press release for the Omega Skyfall watch is awfully long…  But the 007 at the 7 o’clock makes a bold statement.  RPC

 

Should none of the above satisfy your tech hunger, then be sure to be on the look-out foor our Back to School feature starting early 2013.
