“Auto-aim” is something that is built into many FPS Shooters. But what if something like auto-aim was possible in the real world? An Austin-based startup is trying to do just that with its precision-guided firearms.
They have three customized hunting rifles that are equipped with advanced computerized scopes powered by Linux. When the hunter looks into the scope, he sees a video image taken from the scope’s objective lens, instead of the scope being a direct visual scope.
You can tag your target, and then the marked target is kept in the scope’s field of view, and when the hunter pulls the trigger, the hunter will need to match the position of the reticle with the marked target, which will then fire the rifle. I guess that’s cheating, but then again, we have it in video games, so why not?
