Exploding pen not required: MI6 looks for new 'Q'
spy tech master




Can you turn a wris****ch into สมัครเล่นสล็อตออนไลน์ แจกเครดิตฟรีทุกวัน an explosive,
or perhaps you're able to design some X-ray glasses to see who is carrying
a concealed weapon? If so, perhaps you should apply to be the next "Q" at
Britain's MI6 foreign spy service.


The head of Britain's Secret Intelligence Service said on Thursday (Apr 29) that
the spy agency was hunting for a new tech chief, "Director General Q", known
to all James Bond film fans simply as "Q".


"We’re looking for a new ‘Q’. If you want to serve your country by helping MI6
to develop the operational technology of the future, please take a look," Richard
Moore wrote on Twitter.


In the Bond films, "Q" has furnished agent 007 with an array of gadgets from
an Aston Martin sports car with passenger ejector seat to a ballpoint pen that
turns into a grenade.


However, according to the job description the real-life version will be
"responsible for the teams who create and adopt technologies to enable our
mission against the UK’s hardest adversaries".


"You turn disruptive technologies from threats to our operations into
opportunities, putting MI6 at the leading edge of digital innovation," it says.


In the Bond movies, Q has been played by men such as Desmond Llewelyn,
Geoffrey Bayldon and John Cleese, but in 2017 the former MI6 chief disclosed
that the job was actually held by an unidentified woman.


The ad warned that the successful candidate would "not be publicly avowed",
while there was no mention of any ability to design watches with lasers or
bagpipes that turn into flamethrowers.
