We just eyed PDI's BorMar paintball
gun on display at this week's Risk Control in Tokyo
(RISCON) exhibition, which wants its goers to "control risk to the fullest despite unavoidable difficulty." Apparently the BorMar can be hooked up to a robot
for automated paintball firing up to 15m (49ft) and is ideally used in unmanned areas like a parking lot at night to splatter miscreants with bright red paint (or other assorted colors) if they trespass. Say, those Japanese engineers can make just about anything
work with a robot right? We've got a spare Roomba
around here somewhere.
