First U.S. Smart Gun Sale Will Trigger Ban on Traditional Gun Sales in NJ

Via Motherboard:

[Amal] Graafstra recently granted Motherboard an exclusive look at a prototype of one his most striking pet projects: the world’s first implant-activated smart gun, which he’s developing in his garage in suburban Washington State. Like other user-authenticated smart gun designs already out there, the idea is that the weapon would only fire in the hands of a designated user. RFIDs aren’t new to the smart gun space either; they’re used in the proximity devices that activate so-called “personalized” firearms like the Armatix iP1 pistol and the iGun, which are unlocked only when gripped by users wearing unique wristbands and finger rings, respectively…

Graafstra’s idea aims to tackle one of the bigger problems facing smart gun tech: reliability. Critics of the technology often say smart guns are just not yet refined enough to work 100 percent of the time. If your hands are sweating, would the fingerprint reader on your smart gun not recognize your grip? What if you can’t locate the proximity ring, or you fumble putting on the wristband in the moment you need the gun the most?

Graafstra’s implant-activated system would work around those reliability issues insofar as the gun quite literally would be part of you; you’d be part of the gun. Grip the weapon and it reads the sub-dermal RFID implant—lodged in the webbing between thumb and pointer finger—unlocking the trigger. The gun would not fire in the hands of someone without the implant, as Motherboard correspondent Erik Franco saw firsthand.
