In the past, we've seen some unique uses for wearable technology, but a gun company by the name of TrackingPoint has developed a Google Glass app that pushes boundaries to the next level. The application is called ShotView and it gives soldiers on the front lines the ability to accurately shoot their rifles around corners or over obscure obstacles. This type of accurate “blindfiring” is made possible by pumping live video from rifle's scope into the Glass's screen thus giving the shooter a real-time aiming sequence without exposing their head or body. Check out the video embedded above to see a demonstration of app's use in a real-life situation.
