Inteliscope was first covered by Steve back in 2013 link at that time the price was listed at $69 which apparently was just the app cost. As Steve said at the time kinda gimmicky. Well the price has gone up to just under $500 but the change is it now comes with the Seek Thermal camera.

The app interface is free and works on IOS or Android phones. The kit comes with the Seek XR Thermal camera and mounts to any picatinny rail. The phone of choice mounts on the rear of the thermal device. It has three points of attachment and is said to hold up to heavy recoil. 50 caliber weapons of any kind are not advised for use with this system.

The app itself uses the phones GPS function to keep you up to date on your location which is displayed on the screen. It also uses the phones camera and flash as well as recording video. The app will also let you use the phones flash as a steady white light or strobe. The app comes with one reticle with others available at an extra charge through the Apple app store or Google store.

We’ve been invited to test the unit which I intend to request and see how well it works. We’ll post the results sometime after SHOT.

Kits begin at $328 and top out with the pro camera at $438. The mount comes with the unit.

SANDPOINT, Idaho, December 21, 2015 – Inteliscope LLC today announced it is now shipping the patented Inteliscope PRO+ Rifle Mount for Seek Thermal’s award-winning CompactXR thermal imaging camera. Inteliscope is the first company to integrate the Compact XR into a night vision scope at a price point of $497.

“With a highly successful pre-sale campaign for the Inteliscope PRO+ Rifle Mount for Seek’s CompactXR, we could not be more pleased to bring this product to market,” said Jason Giddings, Inteliscope’s CEO. “This product is such a great example of how Inteliscope is tapping into the latest technologies to help our customer base perform better and be safer in the field.”

“We are excited to see new innovations through the use of our products and SDK starting with Inteliscope’s mounting kit,” said Tracy Benson, VP of Global Marketing for Seek Thermal. “The idea that the Inteliscope team could quickly make an accessory suitable for their customers leveraging the same smartphone CompactXR device and Seekware SDK at affordable prices is remarkable.”

The $497 Inteliscope PRO+ Rifle Mount bundle provides a quality night vision experience for a fraction of the cost of stand-alone units. The Inteliscope PRO+ mounts any smartphone to the shooters rifle and the Seek XR is integrated into the PRO+ mount using a snap-in bracket with a short extending cable to the phone, providing firm support to improve accuracy and eliminate issues with high recoil. Seek’s CompactXR can detect temperatures from -40° up to 626° Fahrenheit, with the ability to detect heat up to 1,800 feet away.

    camera-to-phone screen has too much latency to safely use as a gun sight

      @Sianmink if it's 200ms delayed, plus whatever pathetic FPS that tiny cheap sensor will provide, would mean a slow blurry hell that will at the VERY BEST be a spotting camera for some real piece of optic, for example one that does not use LWIR as input (night vision or similar).
      Plus, as the PC-rendered fake snapshots show, the sensor is extremely low resolution, and they had to literally push on every available method (like some pretty heavy antialias and color/BW contrasting) just to make it look this "good"... should be a very good indication of exactly what cheap sensor/phone combination we are dealing with here.

      You know there is a pretty damn good reason why none to low magnification LWIR sights usually cost several thousand bucks and upwards if you want something decent (like a no-lag 30-50fps sight with decent resolution and fair contrast and low noise at the same time). This is the very same reason why one should avoid cheap gimmicks like this.
      Today there is simply no magic way to go around the extreme expense of infrared imaging, and for a sight that is NOT mounted on some plain observation platform but an actual firearm a fifth of a second delay is usually a great buzzkill indicator. It is generally the same for both guns, surveillance cameras, separate sensors etc.
      You want half-way decent LWIR sights then be ready to pay at least 3k a pop and upwards, or else it's simply not worth it unless the only "observations" you'll be doing will be finding hot water leaks around an old boiler.

    I will wait until I see them out in the wild and not a digital rendering of what I am hypothetically buying LOL Every picture I have seen of this setup is a rendering, even above. If they can deliver what they are showing then it would make a very nice pest control optic.
