The Future Of Shooting Insurgents In The Face

As usual, TrackingPoint has it covered:

Nicely done video!  LOL as I typed insurgents for the title I immediately thought of this Katt Williams bit

You just know once these become mainstream it’s only a matter of time before someone makes an app for soldiers where it scores kills like a video game.  CNN is going to love that!  I wish I owned one of their systems currently so years from now I could be a tracking point hipster, telling people that I had one before they were cool and then proceed to lament “Warfare just isn’t what it used to be, you know?”.

TrackingPoint-LogoTrackingPoint is one of those great companies, where the guys actually go out of their way to send me personal emails.  There are too many emails from companies I get that are like “DEAR BLOGGER, POST OUR STUFF.  KTHXBYE.”… like I already don’t have a billion things I could post instead.  Don’t these other herbs know I’m not a blogger, I’m just a designer / professional-at-keeping-it-real who blogs? Sheeeeeeiiiiiiiittttttt.

More info on TrackingPoint’s Future of War over at their microsite “SHOT MADE”.

The music used in this video almost makes it seem like CorridorDigital made it.

You know I dont have one insurgent friend. As much as I do not like the urban comedy trend of the past few years, some of KW shit is pretty funny.

The NYPD sure will be happy. I’m kind of conflicted with these guys. If their goal is to get rich by outfitting the entire U.S. military, that is NOT good news for people of the gun. Ultimately, that apparatus will be turned on us.

TrackingPoint isn’t keeping up with the times. Just watch some of DARPA’s or Boston Dynamics’ amazing robotics videos on YT or listen to a few hours of Ray Kurzweil. ;)

NYPD could surely use this system

NYPD: 9 shooting bystander victims hit by police gunfire

and more recently

I heard that NYPD is changing their marksmanship training to “Shoot The Hostage”. Should really up the danger factor for NYC criminals.

How long before they network this system and allow a drone to designate all the targets and send that info to the individual guns? You sweep an enemy squad with your machinegun and it only fires as you line up with each target. That has some scary possibilities.

Just imagine hooking that to CIWS Phalanx cannon.

They would have to slow down the rate of fire to even find the mist left over afterward.
