Oscar-Worthy Gadgets: No Country For Old Men's Transmitter/Receiver

Oscar-Worthy Gadgets: No Country For Old Men's Transmitter/Receiver

As Anton Chigurh, Javier Bardem could be one of the scariest characters at this year's award show. Additionally, the transmitter/receiver that he used to track down the loot in No Country For Old Men could be one of the most annoying gadgets in an Oscar-nominated film. Why, you ask? First off, the receiver couldn't even tell you the address, area, or even general location of the loot — it only beeped when it was in proximity of the transmitter! Secondly, did you see the size of said transmitter inside that wad of bills? You'd have to sacrifice at least 10 grand, just to fit it in without it being noticed!

Although, I suppose I could cut the Cohen brothers a break. The film was set in 1980 and as you may remember, 1980 was not at the height of sleek and compact gadgets. Remember those very first cell phones we were all excited about? Thankfully today, we have great GPS systems like the Garmin Nuvi 660 to help us get where we need to go, and now even Lojack for our laptops for those worrywarts who need that extra blanket of protection. You could even call us spoiled with all the advances we've become accustomed to compared to those great days of the '80s. We've sure come a long way from the metal box that beeps!
