Ipod warefare.

Why not have ipod glasses like these (see link) that allow a soldier or an extravagant paint ball enthusiast to see through their scope with ease?

A strap would hold the glasses to your head while a small rod would connect the glasses to the top of your nose, thus preventing them from engulfing your entire vision.

I imagine that an attack helicopter helmet arrangement would also work well, in that you can easily move the screen out-of and into vision.

A better idea... http://www.cornershot.com/
The screen is mounted on the gun, not your head. Only use it when you need it. [neutrinos_shadow, Jul 26 2009]

       Are you misspelling war as ware, or deliberately making a portmanteau word out of "software" and "warfare"?   

       So, this is a virtual gun sight? Hm! I'd expect that to already exist, but it's difficult to search for. Maybe some of our local gun nu^H^Henthusiasts can help out?

       //nu^H^Henthusiasts// ?

       I'm jokingly pretending to have started to type "gun nut", but corrected myself to "gun enthusiast" in mid-word.   

       In terminal software, control-H is often interpreted as backspace (erase the character in front of the cursor) - but that can be turned off, in which case control-H would be rendered as ^H. (Not all terminals work that way, anyway.) It's an old-timey Internet person type of thing.

       "When holding a rifle in such a way that it is properly braced against your shoulder and supported by both arms, your head is naturally in the perfect position for looking through the scope"   

       That depends on which hand/eye master some people do not have them on the same side...

       PS I tried some of those kinds of glasses and they are rubbish, mostly due to a lack of adjustment mechanisms...   

       As a point of interest, most snipers (basically throughout history) have never had their line of sight parallel to the projectile (even the archers of yore). Today most "snipers" will have the weapon positioned almost perpendicular to their body alignment. The wonders of the prism/mirror, and most notably a sighting assistant, allow them maximum accuracy.   

       Whether this adds to, or detracts from, the above idea, I do not know. And I don't care...
