Who you gonna call? The BlueSniper
Also shown off at Defcon this past week, you can add the BlueSniper to add to your arsenal alongside your Sniper Yagi rifle. Like that other wireless firearm, the BlueSniper consists of a rifle stock with a scope and a yagi antenna attached to it. The team behind this one claims the BlueSniper can be used pick out and attack Bluetooth-enabled devices from up to a kilometer away, and is powerful enough to detect them even through building walls, but not quite powerful enough for busting ghosts.

I'm going to Washington DC in a couple weeks. Think it would be safe to stick this out my hotel room window? I just want a clear connection. Can you hear me now?

I can vouch for the distance cuz the same team (of which I was one) did over 1 mile in Santa Monica with a similar, but less omnious setup. I tell you, everyone was a bit worried about breaking out the Bluesniper on Santa Monica Pier. We decided to go with the more pedestrian panel antenna. It makes me wonder if the GhostBusters would survive in a modern urban jungle.

I think the most dangeous part of carrying one of these in public
would be getting jumped by a frat-boy football player named "Animal"
