You have to give it to SilencerCo. They don’t scrimp on the production values. To wit, the teaser they issued this week for their new, well, what? A reverberating carbonizer with mutate capacity? M41A pulse rifle? Or maybe just a more elegant weapon for a more civilized age? Probably none of those. In their press release (below), they obliquely refer to “human augmentation devices.” And we assume they don’t mean holographic display night vision ski goggles. Or do they? Your guess is as good as ours. What will the big reveal reveal? . . .

SilencerCo Weapons Research (SWR) was created with the intent of making hunting and shooting technologies accessible to everyone. For too long, certain technologies have been unnecessarily prohibited from commercial sale or priced out of the attainable range of most civilians.

SWR not only believes that you deserve better – we plan to show it.

SWR is designing human augmentation devices that are both affordable and capable in order to enhance the shooter’s ability to engage targets, positively identify prey in multiple spectrums, and reduce shooter signature.

  1. Maybe an electronic scope that transmits to a heads-up display in some new goggles? I saw here a number of weeks ago about a scope that transmits to your cellphone, so if it is this kind of setup then it is an extension of the same concept.

  2. I once sold a reverberating carbonizer with mutate capacity to an unlicensed cephalopoid. Hey, he passed his background check.

  3. Im guessing some type of blue tooth HUD in the goggles that goes to a nightvision or heatvision camera attached to the scope.

  4. They had me at half price T-shirt. It’s too bad more companies don’t take advantage of the “swag” factor – silly as it sounds, it can really build brand loyalty. Look at Larue and Noveske; it’s true they build great rifles but they have a dedicated customer base that will never buy a $3k+ build from them.

  5. If it is head mount night vision or thermal then sign me up for the affordable part. Sub $1k for either would be killer.

  6. Give me a quality silencer with a street price of two hundred or less and I’d call that revolutionary. That’ll drive the market crazy. Heck, if they could offer their version of the Gemtech Multi-Mount for two bills then I’d buy several.

    The more they can reduce the price of silencers the more people will jump into to owning one.

    • Since they are so cheap in New Zealand, I have to believe that the price has a lot to do the exclusivity due to government regulation has a lot to do with the price.

  7. “Human augmentation devices?” What is this, Dues Ex, or something? Way to make whatever cool, over-hyped gadget you’re hocking sound sinister. Next you’ll say the surgery to install it is so painless “it’s no wonder you’re number one”

    • “Human augmentation device” is a big word that means “tool”, as in anything that allows a person to do more than they could without it. (see: guns, knives, hammers, rocks, etc.)

  8. Also I’m fairly certain that I saw someone turn on active cloaking… Neat video and all but unless you actually *have* active cloaking, that’s just a tease. On the other hand, if you do… You can have my house.

  9. (Later)

    Silencer Co has announced they must sell 1 million pre-orders to turn a profit on their latest device. SilencerCo CEO cited increased advertising costs, and the secondary market, as factors.

  10. Under 640×480 @30 (better 60 fps) thermal cam”s suckt at pixelmash and lag and if you got that the price (5500 dollar + more as an transferable mac10 in acp45) suckt.
    Hope some times in the future it got more mainstream.
