First smart gun with fingerprint unlocking arrives in the U.S.
The World’s first smart gun with fingerprint unlocking and 3D facial recognition.so that only the authorized person can use it, arrives in the United States from Biofire Technologies at a price of almost $1,500 (1,365 euros).
The Colorado-based company christened the creation it has been working on for more than a decade as: The Biofire Smart Gun (The Biofire Smart Gun).
“The Biofire 9 mm smart gun. locks the moment you stop noticing the hand (of the authorized). and cannot be fired unless an authorized user grabs it again. Smart Gun only fires with the people you choose, so the firearm can never cause a tragic outcome in the hands of a child, a criminal or anyone else,” the company explains on its website.
According to statistics from the National Institute of Justice (NIJ). 77% of killers involved in mass shootings used at least several legally purchased weapons. and only 13% perpetrated their attacks with all of their illegally acquired weapons.
Biofire Technologies stresses that this technology does not slow down the weapon, as it unlocks with “just lift it up.”. “We designed the Biofire smart gun so you never have to choose between safe storage and instant access,” states the company, which on its website shows the gun in the common rooms of a home and on a home’s bedside table.
The gun works with a Rechargeable battery and uses encryption technology. to ensure that it cannot be converted to a conventional handgun. Gun deaths among U.S. children rose 50% in the last two years, according to a new report from the Pew Research Center.
