Google Glass can be used for a huge number of things, whether it's getting directions, making people feel uncomfortable in bars or just making cool video calls.

One thing you probably weren't expecting it to be used for was warfare. TrackingPoint is a company that specialises in developing advanced precision guided scopes for weapons and has even built its own augmented reality sniper rifle.

Now the company has turned its attention to Google Glass and the advantages it provides by allowing the shooter to actually see down the scope without physically looking through it.

Using their networked scope, the weapon streams a live feed of the scope to Google Glass, right down to the smart tracking system letting you essentially line up a shot without ever actually seeing the target with your own eyes.
