An idea that started in his parents basement, nineteen year old Kai Kloepfer from Boulder, Colorado created a gun that works like a smartphone.   If the gun is picked up by an authorized user, a sensor recognizes the fingerprint and it will fire.  “I think this could be huge, I think this could be the future of firearms,” Kloepfer said.  This fingerprint sensor utilizes technologies from biometric security measures, which might be the solution to solving the United States' gun violence problem (and not only in US).
