Google Glass has lots of potential in professional fields, and for better or worse, that includes military applications.
TrackingPoint, an Austin-based company that adds aim assistance technology to firearms, is showing off how Google Glass could be used as a remote rifle sight. In a video on YouTube, a shooter uses Glass to effortlessly aim from behind cover, with a view of the target appearing on the screen in front of his right eye.
TrackingPoint hasn’t actually made Glass integration available yet, though the company can already stream its scope views to a tablet directly over Wi-Fi. Glass integration is currently in the testing phase, and it seems like the next logical step now that anyone can buy a Glass prototype.
