Austin, TX (PRWEB) June 05, 2013
In March of 2013, right before SXSW Interactive, applied-technology startup TrackingPoint released their Precision Hunter Lite gaming application for iOS. The application showcased TrackingPoint's unique Tag, Track, Xact technology, the basis for their disruptive Precision Guided Firearms. Three months later, TrackingPoint is happy to announce that downloads of the application have cracked 15,000. Plans for expansion of their application series are planned, with new titles including Precision Warrior currently in production. Precision Hunter Lite is currently available for free on iOS in the Apple Store for iPhone and iPad. The trailer for the app can be seen on TrackingPoint's youtube channel.
Precision Hunter Lite, developed in partnership with Austin-based mobile app developer Chaotic Moon, lets users choose their quarry, then enter a virtual world via the HUD to practice their extreme distance hunting skills. The app makes use of device movement-as the user moves his iPad or iPhone, the onscreen landscape moves as well.
Precision Hunter Lite includes instruction on game anatomy and location of vital organs that will result in clean, ethical shots. Once in the app’s hunting mode, success is only achieved with precise, ethical shot placement on game. On-screen information displays post-hunt statistics, harvest ratio, and vital zone accuracy in order to help users improve their precision on a variety of game.
Precision Hunter Lite is an accurate representation of TrackingPoint’s exclusive Tag Track Xact (TTX) smart rifle technology. The shooter tags his target by pressing the “Tag Button” with his left thumb, automatically setting up the shot and persistently tracking the target, even if it is moving, with a red dot. Over 20 ballistic variables including range, wind, target velocity, shot angle, rifle cant, temperature, barometric pressure, and the Coriolis effect are instantly calculated to create a perfect firing solution, represented by a blue “X”. Once tagged, the shooter simply realigns the blue “X” reticle with the tag, presses and holds the onscreen “trigger” with their right thumb to turn the “X” red and arm the system, and aligns the center of the red “X” with the red dot to fire the system at the target.
