Students from NYU Tandon win $1M smart gun design contest


A high-tech vinyl gun holster designed by a team of students at New York University Tandon School of Engineering won a $1 million smart gun design competition, Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams announced Monday. “This is everything for us,” said team leader Sy Cohen. The winning design includes three security options. First, the gun owner’s fingerprints must match before the weapon can be removed from the holster.
