postheadericon Concealed Weapon Detection System Being Implemented For The First Time. Coming To A Neighborhood Near You?

In Las Vegas, Nevada, it is perfectly legal to carry your concealed firearm into a casino. If they find out and ask you to leave, however, you’ll need to oblige or face trespassing charges. If you’ve carried inside a casino before undetected, that’s about to change.

Patriot One Technologies, Inc. is about to kick off an experiment of it’s new detection system. They’ve partnered with Westgate Las Vegas Resort & Casino to implement the system in public for the first time. But what does it do?

The system integrates with current security systems to alert the property of any visitors who are carrying a concealed weapon. In short, the system uses “Cognitive Microwave Radar” to detect any unwanted items, and “related hardware can be installed in hallways and doorways to covertly identify weapons and to alert security of an active threat entering the premises.”

If this test proves to be successful in their eyes, it could open the flood gates for companies looking to use this technology in their own locations.

I envision a lot of law-abiding citizens being approached by security and then being asked to leave the property, simply for concealing their legal firearm. Alternatively, they could be asked to leave their firearm in their car, opening it up to theft. Or, as many casinos have, they will let visitors store their firearm in a safe deposit box on property. Lots of good it’ll do, though, if you need it.

Let’s make this easy:

A bad guy walks into a casino with a gun. By the time security sees that he’s carrying a firearm and gets to him, he’s already shot 6 people.

A good guy walks into a casino with a gun. By the time security sees that he’s carrying a firearm and gets to him, he’s already sitting down at a table and minding his own business.

Not to mention if the system doesn’t detect the firearm at all, in which case the only issue is still the bad guy with the gun.

To any businesses who implement this new technology, I can assure you that I won’t be a visitor to any of your properties. I feel that I’m not alone.

Furthermore, I feel it’s only fair that a participating business be required to post a sign that alerts visitors of the invasive technology.

postheadericon Alien Gear Announces New Holster-Docking System

Not too long ago, our friends at Alien Gear Holsters debuted their new Cloak Mod OWB Holster to the world. We fell in love with it. Now, they’re giving us a look at their new Docking System for the holster that will allow you to do many other things with your holster and firearm. Take a look below.

HAYDEN, Idaho (July 19, 2016) — Alien Gear Holsters today announced the launch of its latest product, the Cloak Dock, a tool used to secure a Cloak Mod OWB Holster to a flat surface.

The Cloak Dock is simply installed with four 5/8 inch screws to any flat surface made of plastic, wood, drywall or sheet metal.

“The Cloak Dock is an unprecedented step toward insuring self-defense in any environment the average carrier inhabits,” said Thomas Tedder, founder and CEO of Alien Gear Holsters. “Its versatility comprehensively responds to multiple locations, combining the freedom of mobility with the right to bear arms.”

The Cloak Dock, constructed with robust and dependable plastic, may be mounted to novel locations like work desks, vehicles and shop cabinets to revamp any flat surface into a holster for the handgun carrier.

Attach a Cloak Mod OWB holster to the Cloak Dock by sliding the paddle attachment onto the center bar of the easy-to-use docking mechanism, allowing the firearm to be drawn directly from the newly created holster system with either the shell-side or paddle side out. The mounting system additionally accommodates a forward and reverse cant.

The durable Cloak Mod accessory, available for $ 14.88, is protected by the Alien Gear Holsters’ Forever Warranty and 30-day test drive. For added savings, customers can bundle a Cloak Mod with a Cloak Dock and save an additional $ 4.88 off their order.

postheadericon Nissan selects Microsoft Azure to power Nissan Telematics System

LAS VEGAS — Jan. 5, 2016 Nissan Motor Co. Ltd. and Microsoft Corp. on Tuesday announced that all Nissan LEAF models and Infiniti models in Europe will have Connect Telematics Systems (CTS) powered by Microsoft Azure. Since the Nissan LEAF’s launch in 2010, more than 200,000 have been sold worldwide, making it the world’s best-selling electric vehicle. Nissan selected Azure to meet customers’ expectations about in-vehicle mobility solutions, create additional ways to interact with their vehicles, and enhance safety.

Nissan designs cars to meet the needs of the next generation of car buyers, the environmentally conscious “digital natives.” Having transformed the performance, practicality and public perception of EVs around the world since the LEAF’s launch, Nissan remains one of the leaders in EV technology. The connectivity to their owners and to the world around them makes electric cars more attractive and convenient. Maps, range prediction, charging station availability, charge status, plus all the services customers have come to expect when inside a vehicle are dependent on that connectivity. Azure provides a global cloud platform with cutting-edge security that allows Nissan to deliver services worldwide to this broad customer base.

Nissan CTS is coupled to Azure, allowing a remote connection to the vehicle. With CTS, Nissan LEAF drivers can perform a range of functions on their car, while not even inside. These include using mobile phones to turn on and adjust climate controls and set charging functions remotely even when the vehicle is powered down. An onboard timer can also be programmed to start the charging event.

As countries and regulations become more stringent on data privacy and technology standards, Nissan and Microsoft are committed to investing in meeting regulatory standards around the globe. Nissan selected Azure because of its enterprise-grade security and compliance. Microsoft was the first major cloud provider to adopt the world’s first international cloud privacy standard, ISO 27018, providing another reason enterprise customers can move with confidence to Azure. Azure supports multiple operating systems, programming languages and tools, providing flexibility and choice for Nissan.

With the standard Hands-Free Text Messaging Assistant for all Nissan LEAF around the world, drivers can manage incoming text messages via voice control without taking their hands from the wheel or their eyes off the road. Drivers are alerted to an incoming text and, after initiating the system, can hear the text read out loud and respond by voice, or via the steering wheel switches using preset answers such as “driving, can’t text,” “on my way,” “running late,” “okay.” These experiences are powered by the back-end connectivity and support of Azure.

Nissan can also send over-the-air “point of interest” (POI) updates as they become available, enabling customers to have the latest information as the company continues to refresh its services. Connectivity to Azure allows Nissan to bring new connected features to market faster and offer flexibility for the future.

The partnership allows Nissan to tap into Microsoft’s deep expertise across critical areas such as data management and analytics. Azure offers Nissan the scale and commitment to security it needs to support its global operations. The expansive global footprint of Microsoft’s datacenters provides the coverage to support Nissan’s vehicles anywhere they are in the world.

“Microsoft Azure will help us deliver a more innovative and intelligent future for our connected technologies,” said Celso Guiotoko, chief information officer and corporate vice president in charge of global corporate IS/IT, Nissan. “This is also a bold first step toward innovations that will realize future new mobility.”

Nissan’s connected platform powered by Azure is allowing Nissan to continue to provide its customers with exceptional value and add new services throughout the vehicle life cycle.

“Our partnership with Nissan shows what automakers can accomplish by tapping into Microsoft’s intelligent cloud platform,” said Peggy Johnson, executive vice president of business development, Microsoft. “Further, our collaboration reveals tremendous possibilities for how consumers can get more out of their connected driving experience.”
