A View To A Kill Gadgets
Remote Control Steroids
Back to the Microchips...
Implanted into a race horse, the Chip is programmed to control an injection of steroids to overcome fatigue during a race.
A remote control transmitter operates a needle attached to the Chip.
The remote control itself is small enough to fit into a jockey’s whip, or a cane (just like the one currently being twirled around by chief baddie suspect, Max Zorin.
How this differs from many James Bond gadgets and devices is that it utilises existing technologies to cunning effect, rather than simply using military futurology prototypes at random.
Admittedly, it's a bit of a vague use of a microchip, but the principle of an injection by remote control being triggered is a pretty good idea. Especially as it is the guiding arc of the story-line to the point of the next act in the movie.
What it also does is advance these existing technologies which all good Bond gadgets should do.
