In an urban combat environment, being able to take a clean shot is all about having the right angle. A new combat sight, making the rounds at defense conferences, takes some risk out of shooting around corners. The ParaScope Urban Combat sight works off of any existing scope and uses prisms to reflect the image back to the soldier safely behind cover. "The sight is made up of multiple prisms," Gizmodo reported, "But is solid and ruggedized; no sand gets in to interfere with it or block vision."

"Best of all, it requires no power source â€" meaning no batteries to lug around - and it'll pinpoint objects up to 100 meters away," a company rep said.
