Armatix iP1 Smart Pistol

As society continues its ongoing struggle to reduce gun violence, every once in a while a solid idea comes along that seems to nudge us in the right direction. This could be that next idea.

What you’re looking at here is the Smart System iP1, a .22-caliber pistol from a German company called Armatix. When matched up with the RFID-enabled watch, it becomes a weapon that will only fire from its owner’s hands. When the gun is near the watch, its internal safety mechanism releases and it’s ready to fire. When the bad guy (or at least the guy without the watch) is holding the gun, nothing happens when the trigger is pulled. The watch is sold separately ($399) and is activated with a pin number. It’s being called the iPhone of guns, but please, no selfies with this one. [Purchase]
