New Wonder Ammo? (TTAG T3 “Bolo Bullet”)

The Truth About Guns has the review with video of a new ammunition design that immediately upon exiting the muzzle separates into three fin-stabilized projectiles that remain tethered via a tiny cable as they fly.

Is this an elegant solution to a non-existent problem?  I wonder…

Can they also coat the fragments with a fast acting paralytic agent and put a mini-taser unit into the center of the tether?   Has anyone yet developed obsidian-sharp mono-molecular wire to use as the tether?

It is an  impressive application of design and engineering, though.  Now if the ammo only performed like Maximilian the robot taking out Anthony Perkins in The Black Hole that would be something.
