Explosive device that incinerated Sir Robert King (DAVID CALDER), $5 million of his money, and a good chunk of Ml-6 headquarters in London in The World Is Not Enough. The bomb was triggered by a radio transmitter planted inside a lapel pin given to King by his duplicitous daughter, Elektra (SOPHIE MARCEAU). The transmitter in turn activated a detonator implanted in the money along the metal counterfeiting strip, which had been replaced by a magnesium alloy. Are you getting all this? It seems that in the twenty-first century, tossing a bomb through a window just doesn’t do the job anymore.

Bond tried to stop the explosion when he discovered something wrong with the moisture on his finger after M poured him a drink in her office. I’m still trying to figure that one out.
