Brooklyn BP Adams to Award $1 Million to Designer of Best Smart Gun

Example: The Werbespot-Armatics IP1 smart gun, demoed.

Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams will kick off a Smart Gun Design Competition today at Borough Hall.

According to a release, he'll be calling on teams from colleges and universities in New York City to create the technology that will prevent unauthorized users from firing a gun.

At the conclusion of the competition — held in collaboration with the Mayor’s Office of Criminal Justice, New Yorkers Against Gun Violence, the New York City Police Department (NYPD), and the Smart Tech Challenge Foundation — Adams will award a whopping $1 million prize to the institution that has designed the best smart gun.

Among those who will join him at the kickoff today will be NYPD First Deputy Commissioner Benjamin B. Tucker as well as students and professors from the New York City College of Technology and New York University Tandon School of Engineering, who will participate in the competition.
