the latin phrase deus ex machina has its origins in the conventions of greek tragedy. it refers to situations in which a mechane (crane) was used to lower actors playing a god or gods onto the stage. though the phrase is accurately translated as "god from a machine", in literary criticism, it is often translated to "god on a machine".

in modern terms, the deus ex machina has also come to describe a being, object or event that suddenly appears and solves a seemingly insoluble difficulty, where the author has "painted the characters into a corner" that they can't easily be extricated from; e.g. james bond using a gadget that just so happens to be perfectly suited to the needs of the situation.
