Is there anything a smartphone can’t do? Now there’s a device that turns an iPhone into an intelligent and feature-packed rifle scope.

The Inteliscope, which will be available in June, mounts an iPhone or iPod to a rifle via a Piccatinny or Weaver rail, giving the shooter a heads-up display of features ranging from crosshairs to ballistics data.

The American-made mount, which holds the smartphone in landscape or portrait position, allows shooters to use a host of features, including:

  • custom crosshairs
  • 5x digital zoom
  • video recording from the shooter’s perspective
  • ballistics and firearm data
  • built-in compass
  • GPS position
  • local prevailing winds
  • shot timer
  • flashlight and strobe using built-in LED.

The Inteliscope’s makers say the app “brings critical ballistics and environmental insight to the shooter in real time”.

The mount is made from reinforced polymers with a rubberised finish and is ‘tactical’ in style to suit AR-15 type firearms, although it should work on any gun with the appropriate rail.

However, it is not clear how an iPhone or iPod will cope with recoil heavier than the light kick of a semi-automatic .223 like the AR-15.

The Inteliscope sells for $US69.99 and can be ordered online.
