    I've used mine before IPhone and it worked ok. I didn't go as far as building a contraption as you did. The pic of the Dove is real clear I think for a phone. Better get the patent on it ASAP!

    108 yards on a phone. It looks pretty good to me too for a phone.

    Great idea! I would guess this would cost about $ .39 in China, throw on some freight @ $ .10 apiece to get it here and you could probably sell them for $9.99. I want in !

    B&H Photo has the Meopta MeoPix iScoping Adapter going for $59.99. If BKC's China idea works there could perhaps be a price war coming soon to the iPhone near you.

    Seriously what cool ideas and innovation is out there to utilize the tools we all carry. Just very cool indeed.

    I've researched patents before there upwards of 10k I have tons of ideas but the extra 10k not so much.. trust me the thought has crossed my mind while I was building this but I decided to post anyways or its just another million dollar idea I would be hoarding for myself. If someone does take the ball and run with it keep me in mind! I'm shooting for the current 500 million dollar pot up for grabs in the cali lottery. Bit if it doesn't pan out I'm gonna need a plan b

    If you have a ton of ideas, I'll bet you have one that will pan out in better odds than the 500 million dollar lottery. I guess you can't win unless you play. Best of luck to you in the lotto draw and thanks for sharing this idea here with us.

    Hang in there with your ideas too. Sounds like you probably have more strength in those ideas that's yet to be unleashed.

    I hold a couple of patents for some refrigeration tools I came up with. Look in to a design patent first then move up to the full deal if it starts to take off.

    Oh ya and remember you posted the pic and the idea on the forum that is dated. So if someone try's to say it was theirs first you have the proof!
