A New ‘Smart Rifle’ Decides When To Shoot And Rarely Misses

A new rifle goes on sale on Wednesday, and it’s not like any other. It uses lasers and computers to make shooters very accurate. A startup gun company in Texas developed the rifle, which is so effective that some in the shooting community say it should not be sold to the public.
It’s called the TrackingPoint rifle. On a firing range just outside Austin in the city of Liberty Hill, a novice shooter holds one and takes aim at a target 500 yards away. Normally it takes years of practice to hit something at that distance. But this shooter nails it on the first try.
The rifle’s scope features a sophisticated . The shooter locks a laser on the target by pushing a small button by the trigger. It’s like a video game. But here’s where it’s different: You pull the trigger but the gun decides when to shoot. It fires only when the weapon has been pointed in exactly the right place, taking into account dozens of variables, including wind, shake and distance to the target.
The rifle has a built-in laser range finder, a ballistics computer and a Wi-Fi transmitter to stream live video and audio to a nearby iPad. Every shot is recorded so it can be replayed, or posted to YouTube or Facebook.

    Hi Tap, Is HETT saying we should test the gun on all the above.
    I agree with that, sooner the better.

    A few years ago the pentagon unveiled a missile faster which went 3X the speed of sound, one day they will come up with a weapon faster than the speed of light, which will go back in time and eventually kill the first humanoids / Adam , and all of human history will be eradicated along with every human who ever existed.
    And at this point the military industrial complex will have completed its work.
