A US firm has unveiled a “smart rifle” that transmits a live video feed from the sigh to a connected external display, opening up the possibility of shooting around corners.
TrackingPoint Labs rifles with this ShotView system can be paired with a tablet or smartphone, or even a wearable display such as Google Glass.
In a statement the firearms company said:
“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. Without PGF technology, such positions would be extremely difficult, if not impossible, to fire from.”
