Sci-Fi Guns Are Becoming Real, Thanks To...Google Glass

Any time there's a new technology that's sufficiently impressive, chances are someone's going to use it to make guns work better.

That appears to be the case with Google Glass, which tech/firearm company TrackingPoint is using to augment their laser-guided cybergun to allow soldiers to fire around corners and from behind heavy cover. You may remember TrackingPoint from the "3D video game-style teaser" video they released for their laser-guided smartrifle last year.

Watch the video up top to get a sense of how it works. Honestly, it really was only a matter of time before someone came up with this sort of thing; I feel like I've been using this sort of stuff in video games for years. One step closer to just having all our wars fought by robot proxies, I guess.

Watch the video up top to get a sense of how it works. Honestly, it really was only a matter of time before someone came up with this sort of thing; I feel like I've been using this sort of stuff in video games for years. One step closer to just having all our wars fought by robot proxies, I guess.

That would be nice, hypothetically, since then nobody would get killed, but the truth is it'll just make war completely one-sided or otherwise robot proxies will target civilian cities exclusively, since that's the only damage it can actually do. Really, all this new tech going into war in order to have better defense for everyone's country is only making it even more dangerous toto be an upstanding civilian. As if crime wasn't bad enough.
