You might not immediately recognize the Newton Telescope as an astronomical optical instrument, for it's missing the characteristic closed shaft. Instead, this futuristic and remarkably reduced apparatus has a body that's largely void.

With relatively simple technology, Erik Edward Kim proposed the integration of mirrors and lenses into the compact base of the device, from which the latter can be removed and connected to the streamlined cage-like end. Built into the cutting-edge contraption are a pair of GPS chips that can help you to locate particular patterns of stars above. The Newton Telescope can be synced with a smartphone app to increase the accuracy of your search for galaxies and nebulae. You can even snap photos of your nightly sights with this futuristic system.
