The army was showing off a concept a while back that would allow a soldier to fire around corners without leaning out, it used some kind of video system.  I'm not sure if they scrapped the idea or not.

It sure would make for a long game of paintball if all you had for targets were hands and markers.

The Israli Army was playing with a concept weapon a while back for shooting around corners during urban clearing operations.  It used high capacity 9mm magazines and a video linkage.  The operator could stick the weapon around a corner and aim and fire without having to expose himself at all.  Here is some info on it for gee-whiz purposes.

Pinhole camera- $19.95

3" LCD video screen- $49.95

Solder, 3' of wire & soldering iron- $9.99

Ability to look around corners- Priceless.

Seriously though this is possible to do.  The real limitation is the lack of range that most paintball guns have.  As for aiming your shots from a video screen, that is acomplished the same way a scope is.  Simply put the crosshairs on the video screen and adjust the camera until the paintballs land where the crosshairs are pointing.  While this sort of set up wouldn't be very usefull on a speedball field, it would be neat to have.  And would be a good project to demonstrate your ability to be creative, and not have to rely on others to tell you what is possible.  Go for it and tell me how it works out.  Expand your horizons and leave ignorance to others.

In general the act of aiming is to look at your target and determine where you want your shot to land.  In order to aim falsely, you would need to close your eyes, which of course negates the idea of aiming in the first place.  Besides, if you cannot see what you're shooting at, whay are you shooting at it.

The trouble with projecting a crosshair in your helmet is ensuring proper eye relief and eye positioning so that the angle isn't screwed up. a milimeter of alteral displacement of the eye compared to what the computer thinks it is could utterly screw up your aim with this system.

 

Simply put, it ain't gonna happen.

lol, i can see it now, a gun with wheels and a motor, runnen around with motion cencors a swivel mount and shoots 20bps... and an optional energy shield for those sticky situations... comes with a remote control, or when your thumb gets tired, and automatic playing mode so it plays all by its self!

Well that system is used on the apache helicopter(i work on it) yea in the way of coolness hells yea. MONEY NOOOOOOOO like over 60,000 is just for the little tv for your eye not to mentiont he trackers for the helmet and the computers and the sight and the hydraulics. Pay 30 bucks and get a laser lol. Or a spy cam and small video moniter like the new systems the army is trying to develope. Nifty idea though. just not money smart.

Another idea is you could use that camera and get adown-the-barrel view, not for aiming, but for getting some sweet in-game action shots...
