SWORD is a mobile device attachment that allows you to scan people for weapons (including 3D printed guns and knives), and then instantly detect and deter known threats using facial recognition.

SWORD was developed by Royal Holdings in the UK and is partnering up with Emergency Protections who is also selling an “umbrella” that doubles as a legal weapon.

According to the SWORD website, the intentions of the product are to help detect threats and identify dangerous people who might pose a danger to population dense areas such as schools, concert venues, airports, and corporate buildings.

You can request a demo of the product here.
