The smart gun has moved out of science fiction, and is now science fact: how smart and secure are they?
With advances in technology, smart guns have eventually started to get traction in real life. There are things such as the Identilock biometric trigger guard accessory, which locks the gun down unless the right fingerprint verifies the rightful owner. Then there is the Armatix IP1, a gun with the identity verification built right in. It works by requiring the owner to wear a smartwatch device while using the pistol. Unless the watch and the pistol are within 12″ of each other, the gun will not fire.
Or at least that’s the theory.
