We're gonna stick in New York and go to Jeremy Kaplan, someone who knows a little bit about beer as well, I'm sure.
He is gonna talk about Android and Chrome, your science and technology editor.
His article is not yet up on FoxNews.com, but it'll be up shortly.
We can still talk about, of course, all-- everything new about this.
Jeremy joins us here live.
Jeremy, give us kind of the layman's version of what's going on with Android, Chrome, and all the latest-- newest and greatest.
-Well, there is this big conference coming out-- I'm sorry, big event coming up next week where we're gonna see some new updates to Android and Chrome.
Very interesting stuff, a lot of rumors about what's coming out.
At this point, it's still just rumors.
4.3, the next iteration of the Smartphone software, is probably going to be released.
That's very neat stuff and there's likely going to be some new tablets as well.
The other story that I really wanted to talk about, though, if I can-- if I can change topics briefly, we have a story coming up shortly on smart guns and that's really what I was hoping to talk with you about, Adam, some new and really impressive innovations in the smart gun world and what exactly that means.
The big news that we're talking about is a new sniper rifle, a high-precision sniper rifle that was just unveiled yesterday.
It's this company that takes the technology that military jets used to more accurately track things.
You know, when they shoot, they're not just blindly shooting.
They have this incredible, high-precision and high-accuracy tracking technology.
This company has built that into rifles.
So, we have these sniper rifles that they claim are consistently repeatedly accurate for anyone, not even a trained sniper, just anyone, at up to 3000 meters.
That's almost a mile and three quarters.
Very, very interesting stuff.
A big step forward in the smart gun space.
-Yeah and my apologies to you.
I said a-- You sent an e-mail with Google and Chrome and I thought you're at into the whole smart gun things.
So, I appreciate you transitioning for me.
-[unk] I wanted you to go back to that as well.
-Well, you know, we're [unk] in a bar obviously where we have not had any adult beverages yet, but I'm really running the show on my two Smartphones so-- and my one laptop.
So, when I saw the e-mail, I was like, "Oh, cool, Google Chrome," but I actually like, you know, the smart gun technology we're talking about is incredibly important too.
I mean, you're kind of coming off what Allison was talking about with military technology.
I mean, these are really important advancements, and you know, I guess-- Has there been any negative feedback of this at all? Have you heard any of that or just pretty much-- just about how cool this technology is? -'Cause there's really a technology in its infancy and you're hitting it right on the nail on the head there.
A lot of the big innovations are being made specifically to improve the safety factor, for one thing, and to make these things a lot more deadly, of course, make it easier and more accurate about killing people-- not people-- animals or whatever you have to be doing with your guns, but the issue is a lot of people are very concerned about these things.
What we're seeing here is the sniper rifle that's this high-precision thing and having that kind of-- -Right.
-technology in anyone's hands is kind of a weird situation.
A lot of people are saying that this might enable some strange a bit-- how I put this, the government could easily be locking into some of these things.
One of the big advancements in smart gun technology is the GPS sensor.
GPS's are everywhere, build that into your gun, and it's very easy to say this isn't the gun owner.
Therefore, the gun should be turned in.
-However, who's got control over that? All of a sudden, is the government watching my gun? That might be a big issue.
So, that's something a lot of people are very concerned about.
The other big smart gun technology is a biometric sensor system so that the handle of the gun can read your palm-- your identity basically and tell exactly who you are.
Again, though, is there a database? How would something like that work as the great next step in? A lot of the issues that still have to be resolved with some of these technologies.
-Jeremy Kaplan in New York, Science and Technology editor, whose article will be up soon on FoxNews.com about smart gun technology.
Great stuff, Jeremy.
I know there's some stuff here developing in California.
We're gonna definitely have to talk to you about that in the coming weeks, and also, you will be talking about Google and Chrome and-- -I'm hoping you will as well.
-and all new things with Android.
Yes, next week, we will definitely bring him back for that.
-All that information.
-I was a little bit ahead of myself.
We were excited.
It's kind of like Apple.
I don't know what the Apple thing is.
[unk] -I love [unk] -What's gonna be new? [unk] I appreciate you being on, Jeremy.
You got the Google glasses, so we know we think you're still kind of cool.
