Finally, Viagra For Your iPhone

Well, no. It’s actually an 8x fixed optical telescope that attaches to the iPhone’s lens.

The package (ahem), available from USBFever.com, includes the scope, a stand and an iPhone hardcase that is used to attach the scope to the lens.

What could it be used for? A handy promotional video seems to suggest perhaps spying on your neighbors in the pool, and a Mashable post wonders if the telescope could be used by “predators with less-than-pure motivations.” Although with its bulky length — the scope looks like it’s almost the length of the iPhone (4.5 inches, in case you were wondering) — it’s probably not something a budding James Bond could easily…uh…whip out of his pocket.

The scope kit runs $28.99 and the site says it’ll ship “on or before 25 Nov 2009”

There’s also a 6x version available that’s $10 cheaper and ditches the stand. Although, with all the hand-shake jitteriness displayed in the video with the 8x, the stand is probably a good idea to save yourself an eyestrain headache — even though the 6x’s susceptibility to hand shake is probably reduced.
