New “Smart” Handgun

Just announced today, The Smart System iP1, a .22-caliber pistol made by the German gun-maker Armatix GmbH, can only function with an accompanying wristwatch, which is sold separately, according to an article by Michael Rosenwald of The Washington Post.

When the RFID-equipped watch is activated by a PIN number and placed near the gun  — like when a shooter grips the handle — it sends a signal to unlock the gun and a light on the back of the weapon turns green. (nothing will ever go wrong with this)

The pistol, which looks like a cross between Knight Rider, a Cylon, and Meagron, will sell for $1,399 and the watch (which is, of course, sold separately) is $399
