[Video] DIYer Hacks EOTech Style Optic and Adds New Reticles, Features
File this one under cool stuff for the day. A DIYer on Youtube has hacked an EOTech style optic and incorporated new reticles and features.
According to a comment exchange on the Youtube, the physical changes could actually make the sight more durable,
Q – That’s awesome, how well does it stand to the recoil?
A – It should actually be more durable than the original, since I’ve removed all mechanical/moving parts. It also weighs a lot less due to small LiPo battery instead of 2xAA.

First version of a hacked EOTech’ish scope. (Based on a cheap knockoff that’s actually a reflex sight rather than holographic)
———————- This is nothing more than a proof of concept. A small, fun hack. It is not meant to be actually used in any way. ———————-
There’s still loads of space left internally, so future (useful) versions could include features like ammo count, display of external sensor data like temperature, compass, GPS data/waypoints, etc. Geeky fun!
