  1. [...] Around the (Google) Earth with James Bond [...]

  2. We grew up loving all of the James Bond movies, Sean Connery and other actors were household names to milions of viewers arond the globe. It was an exciting time for filmmakers at Pinewood Studios and we couldn’t get enough of Bond. If a scaled down version of the underwater car was mass pro produced to consumers, we could reduce environmental carbon emission twofold.
