Looking at the Exacto a little more closely... what the hell is it homing in on? Laser guided bomb comparisons were made - its it adjusting to hit an illuminated point?

The article implies it uses electro-optical guidance like the Maverick.

It certainly won't hit as hard as most .50 rounds since a good bit of the round will have to be lighter than lead, steel, or tungsten and it'll loose speed maneuvering. Still, it should deliver enough energy to make something's day.

I wonder what would happen if you combined EXACTO with the TrackPoint system?
Answer: Fighter Jet Infantry.  Now we just need to add jetpacks...  Or better yet, those exo-suits with boosters...

aka the Cyberpunk Smartgun.

While it offends my sense of propriety for sport hunting, it is impressive.

Not sure how much utility they would have together, since they're sort of doing the same thing from opposite ends. For really long range shots there'd be a benefit since the scope elimnates movement, drop and such and the bullet eliminates wind drift.
