For long range accuracy you’ll inevitably opt for an optical scope.  However, if you’re looking to convert your rifle into a next-gen weapon you won’t have to look much further than the Inteliscope.

The Inteliscope iPhone case can mount to any firearm with a Picatinny (Mil-STD-1913) or Weaver tactical rail.  It features a rubberized finish, a high strength composite-reinforced polymer and the ability to mount it in portrait or landscape mode.

The accompanying app not only provides a 5x digital zoom, and the ability to video record your shoot, but allows you to peak around corners, negating head exposure.  Heads up information, such as a built-in compass, head wind speed, a shot timer, firearm data, and more, should also lend an assist when on the hunt.

The Inteliscope is due to go on sale this month for $70, though expect a price increase later in the year.

Note: there was a shooting at SMC today, a local college not too far from where I live.  This post is not a reflection to my insensitivity.  Our thoughts go out to the victims and those injured in today’s brutal attack.
