The Sniper App for Google Glass, Because That Couldn’t Possibly Go Very Wrong



I guess pretty soon we’ll be saying that guns don’t kill people, but Google does – TrackingPoint labs have figured out an app for the wearable device that helps less accurate marksmen account for wind resistance, firing around corners, and other potential factors that might keep somebody crazy with a gun from killing you the first time.

These’ll be great for the military, but I’m not sure the kind of person who’s likely to be an early adapter to Google Glass is the kind of person I want armed. TrackingPoint’s timing is impeccable, no?
