Wireless Weaponry

Armatix .22 cal at the Shooting Hunting and Outdoor Trade Show

— January 29, 2010 — Tech
The wireless watch controlled .22cal pistol by Armatix (shown here in pic #1,) was the show stopper at this year’s Shooting Hunting and Outdoor Trade Show. The $10K 007-style linked LED gun won’t fire unless it receives a signal from its matching wristwatch. Have a look through this gallery which features some of the latest and greatest enhancements and innovations in killer gear.

For those of us who just didn’t get enough of a techno-fix from CES 2010, the Las Vegas Shooting Hunting and Outdoor Trade Show featured enough wicked weaponry to hold us off until we can hunt down the next one.
