10 Real James Bond-Like Surveillance Gadgets

Movies are not only escapist fantasy, but often serve as inspiration. Dream it up for a film, and someone, somewhere will start working on making it a reality. The many hi-tech surveillance gadgets James Bond used have real-life counterparts that exist today. While some were developed independently, we can’t help but wonder how many of these would not exist if it weren’t for the Bond films.
For example,
9. X-Ray Glasses
Pierce Brosnan looked great playing James Bond in the 1999 movie The World is Not Enough. He sported some x-ray glasses in that film that helped him do undercover surveillance and, inadvertently, get a closer look under the dresses of some lovely ladies. Anyone who has been through an airport knows that x-ray scanners are already being used in the real world, but x-ray glasses have also been developed. X-Reflect glasses are just one option, and in 2014 Google unveiled their X-Goggles at a San Francisco expo. Such glasses could be fun to wear for anyone who is looking to play spy, or they may be of great use to the handful of people in the world who actually are spies.

Suspicious wife triggered full scale bomb alert after putting tracking device in husband's car

A suspicious wife triggered a full scale bomb alert in Leeds by hiding a tracking device in her husband's car before he went to work. Plans were being made to evacuate schools after the unnamed man, who is a retired member of the armed services, spotted the device and dialed 999, telling the operator: "It looks like there's a viable device in my car."
West Yorkshire Police decided the man's military background identified him as a potential terror target and launched pre-planned emergency procedures, including evacuating nearby homes and preparing a reception center. Officers set up a cordon around the man's car in Woodhouse.
Council officials also discussed widening it and evacuating schools and public buildings. Photographs of the suspicious-looking device were sent to the bomb squad, who identified it as a GPS tracker almost an hour after the alarm was raised at 10am on Tuesday. Sources say the police established the tracker had been unsuccessfully hidden in the car by the man's wife.
West Yorkshire Police have confirmed they dealt with a suspicious package in a car, while Leeds City Council say their emergency planning team was involved in the incident. "We were asked by the police to invoke our emergency procedures and began preparing a reception center and made arrangements to transport evacuees," said a spokeswoman. No details have been released about why the woman tried to hide the device in the car.

Police seek man after propane cylinder thrown onto campfire in dispute about the earth's shape

A family argument in Brockville, Ontario, Canada, over whether the earth is flat or round got out of hand. It became so heated that one of the participants threw a propane cylinder onto a campfire, prompting an intervention by firefighters. The dispute boiled over at around 10:30pm on Monday at St. Lawrence Park.
Police said a 56-year-old Brockville man was at a campsite with his son and his son's girlfriend when the woman began insisting that the earth is flat. The older man insisted the earth is round.
Police said the man became so enraged he began throwing objects into the campfire, including a propane cylinder. Brockville firefighters were called to put out the campfire. By the time police arrived at the scene, the man had left. Brockville police are looking for the man and say they expect to charge him with mischief.
