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).
