Aiming a weapon is harder than it looks. Shooters need clear views of a distant object (the target) and a near one (the iron sight at the end of the rifle barrel) at the same time. But the eye can’t quite pull this off, as a simple experiment shows: Point at a faraway house or storefront, then try to bring both your finger and the building into focus. One or the other will be blurry.
Enter the MicroSight…. It allows the shooter to focus on both the target and the front sight.
If you ask me, David Crandall (the Engineer who developed this technology) should have quit his job, got his own funding, and started his own company. He basically just threw billions of dollars in the garbage by letting his employer (the Idaho National Laboratory) have the technology.
My sister graduated from [OPSEC] with a Masters degree in [OPSEC] a few days ago, so I missed this… but it has since shown up everywhere:
Someone explain the point of it to me.
Is it for people that have dropped the money on an SLR, only to use auto focus to take quick inaccurate shots?
What distance do you zero the sight for?
People that think they have a use for something like this should probably also put an arrow on their camera that says “point this way” on it, so they don’t accidentally pick it up backwards and take a self portrait instead that hummingbird on the flower they were trying to get.
I am not going to give this product the dignity of a link to its purchase page, but if you have any self respect you will not google it anyway, and decide to purchase it for $45.
I’m waiting for a picture down the road where someone mounts a high powered scope on that adapter instead for some LOLz.
