Smart gun technologies making more accurate and deadly weapons

The marriage of technology and weaponry is helping in the development of `smart` guns, which promises to boost security, improve accuracy - and make guns even deadlier.

Washington: The marriage of technology and weaponry is helping in the development of `smart` guns, which promises to boost security, improve accuracy - and make guns even deadlier.

The newly unveiled `supergun` from TrackingPoint, which emulates the target-locking technology from jets to turn any rifle into an ultra-accurate sniper gun capable of consistently hitting a target from 1.75 miles away, Fox News reported.

Another example of the technological advanced gun has a geo-location system that tracks a gun and can remotely lock it (or fire it).

YardArm`s tech should be ready in a prototype form in 60 days, Jim Schaff, vice president of marketing for Yardarm Technologies, said.

The New Jersey Institute of Technology displayed a personalized gun in 2005 that had biometric sensors in its grip and a customized trigger, which tracks a shooter`s hand size, strength, and grip style.

The gun was programmed to recognize only the owner, or anyone the owner authorizes.

Colt developed a bracelet - in the late 90s- which emitted a radio signal that stirs a mechanism inside a weapon to allow the gun to be fired.
