A 17-  year-old high school student from Colo rado has applied biometric user authentication to firearms to develop a gun that unlocks with the user's fingerprints.  Kai Kloepfer developed the gun that works by creating a user ID and locking in the fingerprint of each user allowed to use the gun.  It will only unlock with the unique fingerprint of those who have already permission to access the gun.  The gun developed by Kloepfer,  who has an interest in information security,  has all user data kept right on the gun and nothing is uploaded anywhere else so it would be pretty hard to hack and this potentially makes it ideal for military use as well Kai Kloepfer won the 50,000 Smart Tech for Firearms Challenge for his smart gun prototype
