Goggle glasses for shooting accuracy. Holy smokes. This is futuristic, cutting edge and geeky at the same time. I want one. Maybe I could beta test . . . hmm.
A new Google Glass app currently in its testing phase is arguably one of the coolest gun accessories in decades.
The app is called ShotView, and it will apparently give users the ability to shoot accurately around corners, from unsupported positions, behind the back and over barricades when paired with the right firearm. The potential for this technology to be utilized in the military is glaringly obvious.
Don’t get too excited, though. The technology firm behind ShotView, Tracking Point, told the Huffington Post that it has no plans to make the Google Glass app available to consumers. You can, however, download the same app for use with smartphones and tablets.
In a promotional video, Tracking Point explains that a weapon’s scope is first equipped with a camera, which then streams video via WiFi to a connected device — in this case, Google Glass.
No doubt this will first be implemented in the military. Something like it is already there. It’s good to have the best-armed military against nations that pose a threat to us. It’s downright necessary to have a well-armed citizenry, because the government ALWAYS poses a threat to us.
