Proudly presented by "The History Channel" - This 2-disc set from the "Modern Marvels" series takes a close-up look at the pop culture phenomena of monster trucks and James Bond gadgets.

Disc 1 - Offers the viewer a total thrill ride where monster truck owners rev-up their mighty engines and perform amazing daredevil stunts like never before seen.

To be sure - Monster-truck mania has a 30-year history where the adrenaline-rush of "car-crushing" has evolved into quite a crowd-pleaser.

Disc 2 - The viewer not only learns all about the evolution of the super-duper "Rocketbelt" - But they are also given a first-hand look at the workings of the auto-gyro whirly-bird, as well as a gander at the fantastic features of the Q-Boat and the DB5 sports-car, too.

In conclusion - This informative "technology" documentary (from 2007) certainly proves, beyond a doubt, that the whole world is, indeed, gadget crazy.
