Enter the Matrix

Matrix is the latest clever weapon for the US Army, allowing soldiers to remotely detonate mines and claymores from a touch screen laptop.

Users of the system will be able to choose between blasting their enemies with Claymores, which spit out hundreds of steel balls propelled by plastic explosives, or with the M5 Modular Crowd Control Munition, a non-lethal take on the Claymore that sprays rubber balls instead of steel.
