treesloth: whosits_112: Pfft, call me when he jumps on it and kills it with his bare hands.

I usually talk them into committing suicide.


That's nothing...I talk their mother into killing them.

Dimensio: my big toe itches: Really cool technology, I hope it doesn't make its way into the private sector. I can see hunting becoming way too boring to do anymore.

I suspect that few hunters will be willing to spend $17,000 for a hunting tool.


True, plus if they keep making hunting easier and easier, it'll take all the sport out of it. I mean... it's like the next thing you know they'll just sell meat in a store and you wouldn't have to go into the woods at all!

lewismarktwo: Stone Meadow: my big toe itches: Really cool technology, I hope it doesn't make its way into the private sector. I can see hunting becoming way too boring to do anymore.

That's what a former colleague says. He got bored hunting deer with a rifle, so bought a muzzle loader kit and built it. Within a season or two that was too easy, so he built a compound bow. Finally, he built a paleo bow from native wood, makes his own arrows, chips his own points, etc. NOW he says getting a deer is a proper challenge.

Pfft, call me when he atlatls.

xkillyourfacex: So what happens when you send snipers to combat with these weapons, which since they are auto correcting, did not require much training on part of the sniper... and the scope or computer is somehow damaged? How will the untrained sniper compensate to be an asset?


Well, you could also train your snipers. I mean, I know that's an inconceivable concept, like teaching someone to add before you give them a calculator, but it just may be possible. There even rumors that militaries that don't have this tech still manage to have snipers, though no one knows how or why.
