      TechBits: high tech hunting rifle (05.22.13)

      A newly released rifle is getting lots of attention in the tech world.

      The rifle from Trackingpoint can essentially put a hunt on 'cruise control'. {}It uses a ballistics computer to calculate factors such as distance, wind, and how steady the rifle is being held. {}All a hunter has to do is identify the target, then wait for the computer to take the shot.

      The rifle can even download video of the kill to a smart device, to upload to social media sites.

      some critics say the technology takes the skill and sport out of hunting.
