SMART GUNS arrived....
« on: January 11, 2022, 02:16:01 pm »

I like the idea..  but not the madhouse world

Who will control the logging and safety guards?

CLOUD assholes ?  Big corps?  WTF who protects whom ?

The fingerprint reader unlocks the gun in microseconds, but since it may not work when wet or in other adverse conditions, the PIN pad is there as a backup. LodeStar did not demonstrate the near-field communication signal, but it would act as a secondary backup, enabling the gun as quickly as users can open the app on their phones.
That's gonna be handy in self-defense situations ;D

State laws so far exclude law enforcement from smart gun and approved gun requirements, so I wonder why they think that is even a market.

Because it's yet another one of those startups that just eat cash and move on?
