Newly formed company Inteliscope, LLC recently announced the launch of its Inteliscope Tactical Rifle Adapter and Apple device application – the world’s first tactical rifle adapter for smartphones. The iPhone application is being submitted to Apple for review and approval. As the state agency responsible for promoting exciting news for Idaho businesses, Idaho Commerce was thrilled to have a chance to speak with the company about their product.

Inteliscope, LLC was founded earlier this year in Sandpoint by Jason Giddings, who also established TransluSense, LLC – creator of the Luminae® glass multi-touch keyboard and touchpad. With production facilities in place and TransluSense development continuing, Giddings challenged his mechanical, software and business teams to create the Inteliscope device on an aggressive ten-week schedule.

“We’re ready to get started with what we came to Idaho to do: hire good employees and help the economy of North Idaho,” Giddings said.

Inteliscope products are made up of two parts: a tactical rail mount for an iPhone or iPod and an app that brings critical ballistics and environmental insight to the shooter in real time. For the launch, the company decided to include all three cases in a single product for Apple devices instead of offering three separate products. Thus, when the customer receives the adapter, it will have cases to fit the iPhone 4/4S, iPhone 5, and iPod Touch version 5. The Inteliscope mount system attaches an iPhone or iPod Touch securely to any firearm with a Picatinny (Mil-STD-1913) or Weaver tactical rail, which includes a number of features.

The company also is working with Indiegogo, a crowd-funding platform (similar to Kickstarter), to fund development of the app and hardware for Android phones. If Inteliscope’s campaign is funded, the company plans to have the Android-compatible devices available in August.

Yeloworld Crowdfunding Campaign Aims to End International SmartPhone Roaming Rip-offs

1 Apr

Yeloworld is a startup launched in January 2013 with the objective to end the rip-off that mobile users endure from mobile network operators whenever they make international calls or are traveling abroad and roaming – and as a result do to calling what WhatsApp did to SMS.

The idea came from the belief that money should be spent in far more meaningful ways than paying a phone bill. The founders are three serial Tech entrepreneurs, who have been involved with mobile and Internet technologies for most of their careers and have extended experience in running startup companies, managing projects and leading large groups of people, so they decided to tackle the issue and came up with an efficient, low-cost and interesting way to make cheap calls worldwide.

In technical terms, Yeloworld is an OTT calling service using VoIP (Voice over Internet) to initiate the calls and terminating the calls directly on the carrier networks in over 200 countries.

In simpler terms, Yeloworld is an app for iOS (iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch) and Android phones/tablets that allows users to make very cheap phone calls to any mobile or landline numbers, anywhere in the world, and save a lot of money on international calls.

Yeloworld allows users to call regular phone numbers. This means that the receiving party doesn’t need to own a smartphone, install any app whatsoever or even be online to receive the call, just a regular telephone. Yeloworld allows everyone to call anyone, anywhere, on their “normal” phone (cellphone or fixed landline), regardless of where they are and what type of phone they have.

The apps for iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch and Android are the first set of apps, but to take Yeloworld to the next level, the company now needs funding to rollout more apps to more platforms (BlackBerry, Windows Mobile and even Web Apps), add more features (SMS and more) and ultimately create new jobs.

Yeloworld has started an Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign to help them reach their potential to help millions of smartphone users around the world save billions of dollars on their phone bills and make a significant impact in the way people communicate in a modern, digitally borderless world.
