Coming Soon: A Snitch-Like Bullet

The U.S. Department of Defense is testing .50-caliber bullets that can change direction in mid-flight. Their shells are believed to have built-in fins that direct the projectile upon being fired.

They call to mind the “snitch,” the walnut-size, gold-colored sphere that’s the smallest ball in the game of Quidditch. It has silver wings that enable it to change course as it flies.
