Drone-Vision Rifle Goes On Sale For $22K
A special heads-up display lets you tag a target onscreen before firing.
The most inaccurate component of a rifle is the human behind the trigger, but starting Wednesday hunters can turn to drone-inspired vision for a little help. Provided they have $22,000 on hand for a new rifle, that is.
The rifle works by incorporating a ballistics computer, 14-megapixel camera, a Linux-powered scope, and a special heads-up display that lets the shooter tag a target in the system before firing. The augmented aiming system calculates how humidity, air temperature, and barrel incline will affect a shot, and then adjusts the crosshairs on the display accordingly.
