Designed for government agencies, military, police, SWAT units, and security forces, the TRAP T-2 is a remotely operated rifle. In dangerous situations, lawmen could fire the tethered robotic gun from a position safely out of harm's way. Developed by Graham Hawkes, a successful independent inventor, the gun is powered by a backpack worn by the shooter. At a shooting range near Hawkes's office in Port Richmond, California, the $47,000 rifle fires with deadly accuracy; untroubled by nerves or fatigues, it calmly and tirelessly tracks and hits objects no bigger than a quarter. Some divisions of the US military are already using the system and several police departments are also testing the TRAP T-2. From the book Robo sapiens: Evolution of a New Species, page 150-151..
