New Smart Gun Allows Only Owners To Pull The Trigger

smart_gun_allow_only_owner_to_fire_quikrpostA Smart gun developed by Armatix is so smart that it will allow only the owner of the gun to Fire the rounds , or in other words pull the trigger.

The gun has a light which indicates if the gun is in the right persons hand or not . It will glow to green when correct else will show red light and will keep it locked.This high-tech pistol can be helpful in reducing Gun violence as it will allow only the owner to pull the trigger.

The gun looks like the James -Bond gun and uses a smart Watch that transmits an Identifying radio Frequency that prevents everyone but its wearer from firing.

The gun is one of several competing for a $1 million prize from the Smart Tech Challenges Foundation, a group started by tech investors in response to the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary, where 26 were killed in 2012.

The Smart System’s futuristic appearance hides its simple logic: wear the watch and you can fire the gun. Don’t wear the watch and the pistol is a useless hunk of metal.

According to the company website, the gun deactivates itself as soon as its out of range of the watch such as when its been stolen by an intruder or knocked out of its owner’s hand.

‘Technology has been proven to solve today’s greatest social challenges, and curbing gun violence in this country is one of the greatest challenges we face,’ billionaire tech investor Ron Conway told.

Conway, who’s pumped millions in companies like Twitter, Facebook, BuzzFeed and more, is one of the investors behind Smart Tech Challenges Foundation.

A panel will assess the gun safety solutions devised by companies including Armatix and offer cash rewards to fund the brightest and best.

‘We are going to find that entrepreneur who wins this contest and hopefully build that idea into a huge company,’ said Conway.

While only the Armatix gun works with its watch, another entry is a device that can be inserted into any Glock pistol and warns the owner any time the gun is moved or used.

Another entry is a fingerprinted-activated gun lock devised by Carmen Lobis, the grandfather of Sandy Hook victim Benjamin Wheeler.
