Another amazing use for Linux-Sniper Rifles!

An interesting use for Linux came up at the Consumer Electronics Show, a targeting system for sniper rifles called the 338TP developed by TrackingPoint Precision-Guided Firearms. The system tags the target with a laser and has sensors to measure and account for wind velocity, wind direction, barometric pressure, and air temperature. I don’t think I could stomach the $40,000 price tag though. Take a look at the in-depth article if your interested, the device looks pretty cool.
