Austin firearms startup TrackingPoint has built its reputation around tech-augmented, precision-guided weapons, and its latest mod using Google Glass is no exception.

TrackingPoint’s aim is to give its customers the most-advanced edge a marksman can have, and by implementing wearable tech into its latest concept, that now includes accurate shooting from “around corners, unsupported positions, behind the back, to the side, and around barricades” without exposing the shooter to potential crossfire.

The minute-long video explains how the scopes built into TrackingPoint rifles stream video via wifi to wearable devices like Google Glass, which can then project the live video for a user to see and aim with the weapon with while maintaining almost complete cover.
