“Smart guns,” or guns that will only fire for an authorized owner, are back on the radar.
The White House has called for pushing ahead with smart gun technology.
James Bond has one in the movie “Skyfall,” but in the real world, the technology is not quite there yet, according to smart gun activist and investor Jonas McCord.
McCord’s company Biomac Systems is working on smart gun technology, and he’s not alone.
The New Jersey Institute of Technology has been working on a gun that will recognize the owner’s grip.
Trigger Smart, an Irish company, relies on radio frequency embedded in the gun and in a ring or bracelet the owner is wearing. Without the owner’s ring or bracelet, the gun will not fire.
Armatix GmbH, a German company, has a personalized gun it hopes to put on the market in the U.S. this year. The gun will only shoot if it’s in range of a radio device which carries the owner’s biometric data.
I hope they spend a lot of money on it and get it on the market soon. Let the market tell them what something like this is worth. Like I said before. When hell freezes over.
