Canadian Smart Gun

CBC commenters faint

Non-CBC Story: America’s friendly neighbor to the north has designed and tested a new smartgun with foreboding firepower for its military. That’s right, Canada has made a digital killing machine.

The Canadian Armed Forces’ new weapon has a special hookup for intelligent, sensory accessories, like “electro-optical sights and position sensors that connect to command and control networks.” And it’s not just a gun: There’s going to be a “platform” for all sorts of further development.
