I've seen ads for them. It looks ok for limited resolution drop calculations (out to it's rangefinders limit) but it does nothing for calculating windage. I'd just a soon have an external calculator to combine wind and distance and get back both elevation and wndage offsets. It is a step in the right direction having an auto adjusting reticle, but it's only in one axis.
I'll wait until a unit also handles downrange crosswinds in two axes, moving target lead, air density correction, along with two axes automatic reticle adjustment. I don't think that's very far in the future. I don't have proof but I'm fairly certain scopes with those capabilities exist for military snipers. DARPA did a request for proposal nearly ten years ago for such a scope. I've heard nothing since but results would be classified.
I think the programs on the military channel showing US sniper contests using mil-dot scopes at under 1000 yards and missing more than they hit is just a snow job. They're rarely shown using even laser rangefinders or anemometers yet the technology for portable single ended downrange crosswind anemometers has existed for over 20 years. The cost, size, and power consumption surely have all fallen rapidly since then. I'm somewhat surprised NcStar or or Bushnell isn't already selling them.
