From iPod to 'Grip Pod'

I ran across this little item today from a story in Leatherneck magazine.

As part of the Marine Corps Marine Enhancement Program a sort of rapid-prototyping initiative housed in the Marine Corps Combat Development Command in Quantico, Va. the service is beginning to field a new accessory hand-grip for the M4 and M16A4 with forward rail system that houses a retractable bi-pod.

The so-called Grip Pod is a bit wider than most forward grips and deploys a telescoping bi-pod with a quick push of a button. This little device could give just about anyone the same kind of stabilized precision attached to designated marksman rifles or similar specialized weapons.

What next, a forward grip with a retractable Ka-Bar?
