Our Technological Future – Mixed Bag #17

The Future of Weapons – The XM307 Rifle


I don’t condone violence or wars in any way, but I have to admit: the technology behind this weapon is amazing. This highly advanced, super accurate, recoil-free sniper rifle can program bullets to explode right after entering a window, thereby taking out any bad guys who might be hiding in the room.

In only a few minutes, it can be modified to be a .50 machine gun, powerful enough to take down walls.

You have to see it to believe it, so I have included a demonstration for your viewing pleasure:

    That gun… is awesome. It’s a shame that weaponry this advanced isn’t available at the local gun range; I’d love show a few of those dummies WHAT IS UP.
