The Inteliscope Tactical Rifle Adapter and app allows gun owners to mount their iPhone or ...

You might think strapping your smartphone to a firearm is the last thing you'd want to do with it, but what if it could provide helpful information while hunting or during target practice? That's just what inventor Jason Giddings and his new company, Inteliscope, LLC, decided to do when they combined guns with smart devices to launch the Inteliscope Tactical Rifle Adapter. Along with an iOS app, the adapter allows gun owners to mount their iPhone or iPod Touch to a firearm and use it as a sight with a heads-up display that shows real-time data on their surroundings.  Read More

Trunk can be fixed in different positions to double as a stand as well as a charging cable

A typical iPhone charging cable is between half a meter and a meter in length, and has a slim cord that is prone to tangles and is not particularly hard-wearing. This combination is fine for most users and most situations, but Trunk offers an alternative to the norm.  Read More

iPhone-owning Google Glass owners may soon be able to get notifications ... as long as the...

Only a select few already have Google Glass in their hands ... or, rather, on their faces. But if you are an early owner of Glass, you’re much better off with an Android phone, as an iPhone can do little more than route calls to the smartglasses. That may soon change, though, with some help from the jailbreak community.  Read More

The prototype Chat Perf that turns an iPhone into a smell-o-phone (Photo: DigInfo)

Despite numerous attempts throughout the years, smell-o-vision has failed to take off on the big or small screens. Japanese company Chaku Perfume Co. Ltd. is hoping to have better luck on the even smaller screen with its Chat Perf attachment for iPhone that allows messages or email notifications to be accompanied by a signature smell.  Read More

The XiStera includes a magnetic lens-mounting point, and a tripod mount

Over the past few years, we’ve seen iPhone attachments that let you do things like prop your phone up, attach a lens, or even use it as a bottle opener. The problem is, you can generally only put one of those attachments on your phone at a time. The XiStera, however, combines a whopping eight functions in a single gadget.  Read More

ScoreCleaner Notes turns melodies into notation at the touch of a button

Researchers at the KTH Institute of Technology in Sweden have developed a smartphone application that converts simple melodies into notation.

The Kinsa Smart Thermometer in use

When someone is feeling sick, you take their temperature to see if they’re running a fever. That’s the way it’s been for decades. However, all that a regular thermometer will tell you is their body temperature – it won’t tell you what they might have, or what you should do. The Kinsa Smart Thermometer, while not quite a medical tricorder, is designed to do those things.  Read More

The We5S adds a luxury mechanical timepiece to the iPhone 5

For some time now, the rise of the mobile phone has been seen by many as the death knell of the watch. Why, they ask, would anyone carry around a device that just tells the time when their phone can do that and much more? Smartwatches look set to bring the wristwatch back in style by bringing smartphone functions to a wristwatch form factor, but WATCHe of Switzerland has taken a different approach to combine the two with the We5S – a luxury mechanical watch set in a re-positionable frame designed to fit the iPhone 5.  Read More

Google has launched a less capable version of Google Now for iOS

When Google first announced Google Now, lots of people called it a “Siri rival.” The two services do have some overlap, but Google Now is much more than a sassy personal assistant. Like Google itself, Now is all about using data to provide the answers you’re looking for – whether you’ve asked or not. Today iPhone users can finally get in on the Google Now fun.  Read More

Bodelin's ProScope Micro Mobile is a microscope that mounts on the iPhone

Optics manufacturer Bodelin is no stranger to hand-held microscopes, having previously brought us a series that can be connected to the USB port of a laptop. Given that smartphones are in many ways replacing laptops, however, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that the Oregon-based company has now introduced its ProScope Micro Mobile – it’s a lab-quality microscope that mounts on the user’s iPhone.  Read More
