SANDPOINT, Idaho -- A company near Sandpoint, Idaho is finding a way to turn a smartphone into a rifle scope.

CEO of Translusene Company Jason Gidding’s found a way to turn an iPhone of iPod into what he calls a tactical scope. He calls it the “Inteliscope.”

A regular rifle scope will cost about $100. The iPhone app and a mount will only cost $70. The app comes complete with custom cross hairs and recording capabilities which can be a valuable training tool.

“SWAT teams, for instance, can go into a house they can record the process and use it as a feature later on to verify who did what and use it as a training aid,” said Giddings.

Translusene already has pre-orders coming in. The first round of Inteliscopes should be out in the field next month.
