though primarily a communication device, iPhone has seen a wide and varied non-phone applications such as keyless home entry, food thermometer and even as a weather station. as such the good folks over at Inteliscope think firearm enthusiasts shouldn’t be left out too and came out with the Inteliscope Tactical Rifle Adapter for iPhone, a Picatinny or Weaver tactical rail-equipped iPhone mount that allows you to use your iPhone (or iPod touch, depending on model) as your rifle’s optical system. together with an app, the setup will provide you with critical ballistics and environment information, presented to you on an intuitive user interface with custom crosshairs, digital zoom, video recording, ballistics and firearm data, e-compass, GPS data, wind information, shot timer, and it even let you activate your phone’s built-in LED as a flashlight or strobe light.

on the hardware side of the business, it features a high strength composite-reinforced polymer construction with ruggedized tactile rubber finish, mounts to the rifle’s rail via quick-release cam, allows for portrait or landscape orientation and lets you shoot around corners without exposing your head. while armies around the world poured in millions to research for such a digital optical system, you can turn your iPhone into such a system for just $69.99. available for iPhone 4/4S, iPhone 5, as well as iPod touch.
