Gun violence has always been an acutely destructive social issue in the United States, taking the lives of thousands of innocent people every year. New York City is no stranger to this issue, either. … A team of current and former NYU students won the competition, and were awarded one million dollars for their high-tech design. Sy Cohen, a recent graduate of NYU Tandon School of Engineering, spearheaded this project with the help of his team members, also from NYU Tandon: Ashwin Raj Kumar, Eddilene Paola Cordero Pardo and Jonathan Ng. Going by the name Autonomous Ballistics, the team has invented not a smart gun itself, but a smart gun holster.
