Armatix high-tech pistol gun only works with the help of a pocket watch

Even guns are going digital. Armatix debuted a pistol that requires the help and proximity of a basic digital sports watch at the Shooting Hunting and Outdoor Trade show in Las Vegas. (SHOT, for short. That's too clever that it's downright scary.)

Even guns are going digital. Armatix debuted a pistol that requires the help and proximity of a basic digital sports watch at the Shooting Hunting and Outdoor Trade show in Las Vegas. (SHOT, for short. That's too clever that it's downright scary.)

According to Wired, the German-based company's .22 cal plinker can only fire when in close proximity to the digital watch. To release the extra safety, the watch sends a wireless signal to the gun, at which point a green LED light will light up on the back of the gun (see photo above). (I also hope the watch can tell time.)

Available for shipment next month, these high-tech revolvers won't come cheap, starting at 7,000 euros ($9,718.80).
