TrackingPoint Inc., the Texas company that specializes in creating precision guided firearms, has harnessed Google Glass technology to create a firearm that can hit targets that are behind corners. It’s called the the first precision-guided firearm (PGF).

“When paired with wearable technology, PGFs can provide unprecedented benefits to shooters, such as the ability to shoot around corners, from behind low walls, and from other positions that provide exceptional cover,” TrackingPoint claimed in a press release. “Without PGF technology, such positions would be extremely difficult, if not impossible, to fire from.”

The new device works much like a fight jets head’s up display (HUD), Vice’s technology website Motherboard reported Wednesday. “TrackingPoint’s wearable PGF app gives users the visual aids needed to take their aiming and shooting chops to previously impossible levels,” the website said.
