    There is! It's called a Kestrel. It's only good for giving you the wind at your location though, and the temperature. When you're shooting long range you have to look at either the mirage or trees to gauge windspeed and angle to adjust your dope. Wind also doesn't just blow in one direction as a constant across the trajectory path either. Oftentimes, especially when you're shooting up to 1,000 yards, the wind can be going completely opposite directions at 300 yards vs 700 yards. That would be one sensitive scope if it could see mirage or leaves blowing!

    im wondering

    what's the difference between this one and the one that DARPA has apparently developed? As I understand it the one that DARPA developed is more inclined to be like the one on the tv almost human where the bullet can literally go around corners and whatnot to hit a target.

    I agree with the statement however about "tactical superiority" it does become scary however at the same time what happens when the enemy gets a hold of such a weapon...and what other applications can be attached to a weapon that in theory "can no longer miss".

    Well, what if it takes you 10 seconds to find "the exact spot" on your scope, and only takes me 5 seconds to aim and fire with my traditional rifle?

    Still takes practice, just of a different sort it seems.
