Auto-Aim Coming to Real-life

51 second read


As gamers, primarily of the console variety, we’ve become accustomed to the idea of Auto-Aim; a system of assists that counter the relative imprecision of twin-stick analogue controllers that make it much easier to shoot people in the face before tea-bagging their lifeless avatars.

Now the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) and super-tech company Lockheed and Martin are developing a sniper rifle that nearly aims for itself. Presumably by double-tapping the “aim” trigger.

“It will measure atmospheric conditions, account for the weapon’s maximum effective range and include GPS coordinates. It’s also supposed to communicate with the rifle scope, informing the gun itself of the aim point offset and expected crosswind.”

Guns that aim themselves huh? Pretty soon opposing forces in war will be moaning about lag and how the other team uses l33t hax and lag switches. Probably not so many complaints about spawn-camping, though.
