US firm TrackingPoint has revealed a smart rifle that can show a live sight on Google Glass. The smart rifle works by sending a live video feed from the rifle's sight to Glass - allowing soldiers to simply point their rifle without needing to be in a position to see their target. The app, called ShotView, streams video in real time from the Heads Up Display of a TrackingPoint rifle to a smart phone or table, or Glass.
