Austin-based TrackingPoint has already built up a considerable buzz over their Precision Guided Firearm (PGF) systems, and the firm is sure to get even more attention with a recently released video that showcases the technology on Google Glass. It may still seem like science fiction now, but TrackingPoint intends on pushing the needle forward.
“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,” the company stated. “Without PGF technology, such positions would be extremely difficult, if not impossible, to fire from.”
Not surprisingly, the US Army reportedly purchased six of TrackingPoint’s PGF-equipped rifles earlier this year for testing. Although the company started out crafting long range, bolt action rifles for hunters, the firm has since moved into developing PGF systems for semi-automatic rifles such as the AR-15.
