Rifles keep getting better as technology advances. Meet the TrackingPoint XS1. It is a Linux-powered rifle that uses Linux and powerful scopes to offer auto-aiming.
To shoot at something, you first “mark” it using a button near the trigger. Marking a target illuminates it with the tracking scope’s built-in laser, and the target gains a pip in the scope’s display. When a target is marked, the tracking scope takes into account the range of the target, the ambient temperature and humidity, the age of the barrel, and a whole boatload of other parameters. It quickly reorients the display so the crosshairs in the center accurately show where the round will go,
