We have been follow TrackingPoint and their Precision Guided Firearms (PGF) from their stellar beginnings with wide open eyes. We can see the possibility for scepticism given our own initial inklings of too good to be true. However, after nailing a target at a thousand yards with their original PGF, we were instantly convinced that they were delivering the goods albeit at a high price for many to swallow. As with all new technology additional innovations take over and pricing comes down. TrackingPoint is now introducing their new ShotGlass as well as three new Semi-Automatic Precision Guided firearms including a 5.56 caliber version at the lowest price point ever at $7,495. There is a lot to take in, but we like every bit of it.
TrackingPoint has now introduced ShotGlass as the first wearable weapon-integrated digital shooting Glasses. ShotGlass provides the ability to shoot around corners, while in a covered position, over walls and behind trees. The digital eye-wear has an integrated camera, microphone, HD Recorder, and HD display. Not only can you use ShotGlass to put shots on target, which were previously unheard of, but you can also record the entire experience and upload to digital media.
Tracking Point CEO, John Lupher notes,
“ShotGlass is similar to Google Glass, but optimized for shooting sports. The innovative shooting glasses have an aggressive high-tech posture and connect wirelessly to TrackingPoint’s Precision-Guided Firearm’s. ShotGlass can even record the excitement of your voice when you make an astonishing shot on a moving trophy at extreme distance.”
Aside from firing from a protected position, ShotGlass will also allow you to remain zoomed out, while your PGF is zoomed in providing two fields of vision on the same shot, allowing a unique shooting experience with enhanced situational awareness. ShotGlass will record the full experience and you can download the video and sound to your smartphone or tablet for quickly sharing to your social media. Another unique vantage point for ShotGlass is use by family, friends, guides or instructors so they can join in on your shooting experience to share the hunt or provide insight for improvement. It is also noted that a spotter can wear ShotGlass to direct a sniper to the designated target. An added advantage for hunting all types of creatures is to maintain complete concealment while wearing the ShotGlass, while only exposing the firearm and a support hand.
The ShotGlass features a Wide Screen WQVGA display, High Contrast and Brightness, Sleep Mode when not in use, Optical control buttons, HD Camera, Speaker, and Microphone.
“Wearable tech, designed to enhance the shooting and hunting experience, changes the way you experience the sport,” said TrackingPoint CEO John Lupher. “ShotGlassTM adds an element to hunting and shooting that is beyond belief.”
ShotGlass has an MSRP of $995 with pre-orders now being taken for a March 2015 deliverly. If you purchase a Precision Guided Firearm from TrackingPoint prior to November 30th, 2014, you will receive Shot Glass Free. Check out full details and specs at Tracking-Point.com/ShotGlass
