This gadget is first seen in No Time To Die (2021) when James Bond (Daniel Craig) fights with Primo (Dali Benssalah) in Italy. The bionic eye allows Blofeld (Christoph Waltz) to secretly run SPECTRE from prison. Technical supremo Q (Ben Whishaw) manages to hack into this communication device and give Bond valuable information which helps his mission. The eye makes a final appearance during Bond’s last struggle with Primo when Bond uses his watch to put an explosive end to his adversary.
?This is one of five similar round 'bionic' eyeballs created for use in the action sequence and the SPECTRE party sequence – the various versions were weighted differently for use with further versions being made with different attributes for use in other scenes, such as the eyeball used in the Q scene when being analysed in a machine.
