Shiny New Gadget Of The Month: iPhone Binoculars


If you’ve ever wanted to add more utility to your Apple iPhone, SkyMall’s iPhone Binoculars might be what you’re looking for. These bin-oculars, featuring 36mm lenses, attach onto the back of your phone via a sturdy and specially designed case. The case lines up the iPhone’s camera with one of the bin-ocular’s lenses, giving your camera 8x magnification.

While it’s not going to blow any optic aficionados away, it increases the usefulness of your iPhone’s camera. Just open up the camera app to see the magnified image. Turn your phone into a view-finder to take pictures or record video. Or just watch what your binoculars capture. You can even use the binoculars separately from the iPhone for doubled utility!

The binoculars also come with a travel case and cleaning cloth, and are currently compatible with the iPhone 5/5s and iPhone 4/4s. Pick one up at!
