Ok so what if some company were to put a sensor on the end of their barrel that would put crosshairs  in your goggles. 

The crosshairs would always point where your gun is pointing,  ya know?

So there would be no  need to look directly down the sights anymore and you could shoot people with great precision.

Your goggles would have to be one of those type of weird screens where you can see stuff on it and still look through it.  
I think that'd be awesome. 

Some rich electronics dude should try this lol

There's something like this in Apache Heloicopters. The cannon underneath the nose of the chopper is linked the the gunner's helmet; wherever he looks it points. It's prohitively expensive though.

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.

i was actualy considering mounting a mini cam for a rc car that is wireless to my gun then get some sort of mini monitor to put in my mask out of the way of my straight sight but in the periphial and use it kinda like the millitarys land warrior stuff to peek corners and stuff at bases. oh, and i would also make a protective case for the cam out of some thicker plexiglass and stuff to keep it from gettin busted

Yes, not to mention that pulling the trigger and sneezing with friends or teammates nearby could produce disasterous results.

Not gonna happen... Ever. There is no point of reference for the crosshairs to be represented with, everything in the system could move........

So unless you want to have sensors strapped all over you, with a laptop on your back to process it all.... forget it.

On the same note, A camera-on-gun system like the M29 OICW with the IWS (Integrated Warfighter System) gear would be pretty neat if not practical at all. Still, that would be awesome to play around with.

If you guys remember in APG last year, it did have an article about using Heads Up Displays (HUD for short) and I wouldnt recommend it to anyone in gettin it, unless of course your a rich brat or like what someone mentioned "youre Bill Gates son" because, its extremely expensive.

Lol  yes well it'd be cool all the same.

I know paint guns aren't nearly accurate enough, but you'll always know the general direction that you're shooting at.
This calls for really great hip firing.

Same. I have a stock and I find that all I have to do is pull my gun to my shoulder and its kinda "self-aiming" (see special ops acticle on "self-aiming paintgun")

Yeah but see you would know EXACTLY  where you're  aiming.
I had a stock and I did notice  it "self aimed"  but my mask got in the way so I'm getting rid of it. 

But I'm not an idiot, I know where  my gun is pointed, I just think this would help  in certain situations.

That is a VERY good point.

It's another reason I hate 25 bps so much,  It's cheap.

So? it works. Why do you think we have tracer rounds in the army? every fifth round glows bright orange on belt-fed weapons so we can see where it's going- sights tend to jump around when you fire full auto. It's really no different from watching your paintballs.
