7 High Tech Movie Gadgets That Don’t Exist

Ocean’s 8

Here is an entertaining little new video of highly unlikely tech from famous favorite movies. Of course, the Bond and Mission: Impossible franchises maintained multiple spots on the list. It’s sort of obvious that high tech spy movies would invent some of their techs. And to be honest, the idea of that explosive chewing gum always gave me butterflies anyway, so I am very glad that one is not true. What if a spy lost it and someone found it and started chewing it? I am also relieved that the creepy ass, definitely illegal Cell Sonar Tracking Wall from The Dark Knight is not true tech as well, because it’s crap like that that gives me reservations about rooting for Batman. Anyway, the video was edited together by Madeline Muzzi for Vulture, and this is the summary of the video:

“Whether it’s a heist or spy movie, crime in film wouldn’t be the same without all of the high-tech disguises, fancy getaway cars, and highly engineered weaponry.

“These tools typically reference a familiar technology for credibility, but then apply it in new and unheard of ways. For example, the scene in Ocean’s 8 where Helena Bonham Carter’s character uses a pair of glasses to 3-D-print a convincing replica without looking at all sides of the necklace.

“In context it’s easy to overlook the stretch — who wants to spend an entire movie fact-checking? But if you take a step back, there’s no denying that some of these tricks wouldn’t work offscreen. Check out seven eyebrow-raising examples in the video above.”
