Biofire Creates First Biometric Smart Gun with Facial and Fingerprint Recognition Inspired by James Bond

Biofire, a Colorado startup, has created the first working biometric smart gun that uses facial and fingerprint recognition technology to ensure that only authorized users can fire it. The handgun has a small fingerprint sensor on the grip and a 3-D facial recognition sensor on the back. If someone who is authorized picks up the weapon, it lights green and turns on. Once they put it down, it turns off. If anyone else tries to fire the gun, it won’t work. Biofire’s founder and CEO, Kai Kloepfer, was inspired to create the innovative solution after a shooter killed 12 people at a movie theater in Aurora, Colorado. The company has already secured $30 million in venture capital funding, and is now accepting pre-orders.
