It's a tactical time of year. Crossbows, BBQ aprons, and now a forthcoming rifle scope and rail mount system that shakes up the shooting game by using an iPhone/iPod and mobile app to give readouts of critical ballistics, and provide environmental insight in real time. The Inteliscope attaches one of Apple's smart devices to any firearm with a Picatinny (Mil-STD-1913) or Weaver tactical rail, and grants shooters access to:

  • Custom crosshairs
  • 5X digital zoom
  • Video recording from their own perspective
  • Ballistics and firearm data
  • A built-in compass
  • GPS position
  • Local prevailing winds
  • A shot timer
  • A flashlight and strobe using built-in LED

Inteliscope app iPhone/iPod screens can rotate through RedRound Scope, Standard Scope, Red Scope, Night Vision Filter, and Thick Scope views. The rail attachment itself features:

  • A portable quick-release protective iPhone or iPod cover
  • High strength composite-reinforced polymer
  • Ruggedized tactile rubber finish
  • Adjustable mount position
  • Portrait or landscape orientation
  • Ability to shoot around corners with no head exposure

On the surface, it may seem that taking your iPhone hunting or empty beer can shooting, and mounting it right on top of the destructive apparatus you'll be using to carry out the activity, demonstrates a lack of common sense. But if you really think about it, doing that is probably safer than getting drunk and taking your phone with you into the john.

The Inteliscope system is scheduled to launch in June 2013. The company is currently accepting pre-orders (and payment).
