The World's First Smart Gun

Should any budding international spies happen to be reading this, we have some news for you: fingerprint-coded weaponry is now old hat. Sorry.

For the latest advancement, meet the Armtix iP1 pistol, and with it, the iW1 wrist watch which uses pin-equipped technology to prime the .22 calibre handgun for firing.

When the gun senses the timepiece is anywhere within ten inches, the gun will turn green, giving it the possibility to fire. When it doesn’t sense anything, the red light will stay on and the gun will remain de-active.

Much more than just a possible new way of conducting espionage worldwide, of course, this high concept technology also hints at a safer alternative to gun-use in the future, which could prevent many tragic situations we see today.

And even if customers don’t like the weapon itself ($1,400), there’s always the option of buying the nifty little timepiece on its own for a snip at $400 via the German manufacturer. It's waterproof, lasts up to a minimum of one year on standby, and unlike the wrist-wear from Q Branch, probably has a favourable return policy.
