VIDEO: Hacker Proves Smart Gun Isn’t So Smart After All

Recommended Posts

We’ve all seen the headlines touting the smart gun concept—in which authorized users are the only people who can fire the weapon—as the next evolution in firearm safety. But how reliable is the technology?


A hacker recently decided to put that question to the test, and, well, let’s just say the smart gun has a ways to go.



The hacker, who goes by pseudonym Plore, specifically looked at the Armatix IP1. The IP1 is a smart gun that fires when paired with an accompanying RFID wrist watch. Plore found that he was able bypass the IP1’s security system to make it fire a number of different ways. One included using $15 worth of magnets.


Plore plans on presenting his findings regarding the Armatix IP1 at the DEF CON Hacking Conference this week.


Watch the video above to see Plore demonstrate his IP1 workarounds.

We are a community of concerned patriots who are not overly confident in the current direction of our society, from the wild political climate to what can be summed up as a lack of morals or a complete void of integrity and pretty much a blatant disregard of respect..... Respect for our past, respect for our future and respect for each other. In order to protect our constitution and life as we know it, we decided to not be the silent majority anymore and pull our selves up by the bootstraps and make the world a better place. This website is to unite people like us, people who want to make a difference ... and do it the right way, Little did we know that in doing so we would create the number one militia community online. Here we are. Enjoy.
