Google Glass Rifles Will Make It Easier To Kill People
A Texas company called Tracking Point, using Google Glass, is making what it is calling the first precision-guided firearm. It claims the gun can hit targets behind corners.
“When paired with wearable technology, PGFs can provide unprecedented benefits to shooters, such as the ability to shoot around corners, from behind low walls, and from other positions that provide exceptional cover,” TrackingPoint claimed in a press release. “Without PGF technology, such positions would be extremely difficult, if not impossible, to fire from.”
The new device works much like a fight jets head’s up display (HUD), Vice’s technology website Motherboard reported Wednesday. “TrackingPoint’s wearable PGF app gives users the visual aids needed to take their aiming and shooting chops to previously impossible levels,” the website said.
“Being able to shoot around corners and over hills is a little mind-blowing when you actually do it. Things keep on rolling,” TrackingPoint’s Oren Schauble told Motherboard in April.
