Law enforcement agencies are starting to roll out GPS bullets they can shoot at vehicles to avoid getting involved in high-speed chases.
The GPS tracker sounds like it belongs on the Batmobile, but it's actually a real thing made by a company called StarChase.
The nonlethal device launches out of the grille of a police cruiser and attaches to a suspect's car with adhesive. Officers can then track it on a mobile device or laptop, which means the officers don't have to get involved in a dangerous high-speed chase.
