TrackingPoint Does it Again: ShotGlass

    Wow, I gotta hand it to the TrackingPoint team out of Austin, Texas. This is one of the innovators in the firearms industry. I just got wind that they have announced a new product to complement their scopes, called ShotGlass. While ShotGlass will be released in March 2015, you can pre-order it now for $995, but they are running a special where it comes free if you purchase a TrackingPoint firearm between now and November 30th.

    Shooting around corners.

    You can shoot from completely protected positions behind trees or around corners when it’s necessary to remain unexposed to the target.

    Increased situational awareness.

    When your Precision-Guided Firearm is zoomed in on a target, the view in ShotGlass can remain zoomed out. You get 2 unique fields of view on the same shot.

    Video and voice recording.

    ShotGlass can record everything you see and say. You don’t need to clamp a camera to your hat anymore. ShotGlass videos download directly to your smart phone for sharing with friends, family, and social media.

    Collaborative shooting and mentoring.

    Friends or family can wear ShotGlass while you are shooting. They can see exactly what you see, and share your experience. A father can mentor his son by guiding him to the proper whitetail. A professional hunter sees exactly what target his client is engaging and can direct the client to the desired target and point of impact. In battle, a spotter wears ShotGlass to direct his sniper to the target in real-time under high stress.
