Danger Room reports on a unique pistol made by German firm Armatix. The gun is armed by a wristwatch and disarmed when the watch is out of range. The .22 pistol sells for 7000 EUR ($9750)!

Obviously this device is very impractical in the real world. The bright green light shining into the user face would make the sights very hard to use at night, not to mention making the user an easy target.

    An fascinating discussion is value comment. I think that it's best to write extra on this topic, it may not be a taboo subject however generally people are not sufficient to speak on such topics. To the next. Cheers
