Eyeclops Night Vision Goggles

Eyeclops Night Vision Goggles

Of course, I think most people will use it for devious purposes, such as spying on lovers in their throes of passion in a secluded park or country side, but thats beside the point. You get up to 50 feet of visibility even in complete darkness. Dont expect them to be on par with military-spec night vision gear after all, what do you expect for $79.99? The Eyeclops Night Vision Goggles will be available this fall. Id suggest against wearing this during New Years Eve since the fireworks display will do a number on your eyes This article was filed in Homepage > Gadgets .

New Sensor Paves the Way for Night Vision Contact Lenses

A product called Night View NV Glasses claims it can help sharpen your vision when it’s dark. More from KWCH.com StufZ This Does It Work product went for a ride with Grene Vision Group’s Dr. Trevor Askew. “I don’t think they’re going to win any fashion contest,” Dr. Askew said, sarcastically adding “as you can see here, they’re very attractive.” We asked him to try “Night View NV glasses.” The commercial states: “You need visual clarity. Get it instantly, with Night View NV.

Night View NV Glasses

Night vision, presently, is a rather clunky technology epitomized in the rainy Tyrannosaurus rex scene in the original Jurassic Park . To see in the dark, a person dons a set of binocular-shaped goggles strapped to the head. The devices also produce a lot of heat, so they need to be cooled, adding to the overall volume of mechanics required. Now, researchers from the University of Michigan are close to packing night visions clumsiness into technology that fits on your fingertip. They built a super-thin infrared light sensor using graphene a material thats a single carbon atom in thickness that could be stacked on contact lenses or integrated into smart phone cameras for handy night vision. Sensitizing Graphene If you look at graphite under a microscope, its comprised of thin layers of stacked carbon. If you separate these layers repeatedly until you reach a single layer, youre left with super-conducting, strong, ultra-thin graphene.

Counting the cost of East Africa’s poaching economy

Poaching has risen sharply across Africa in recent years. Organised gangs with insider knowledge and armed with automatic weapons and specialised equipment such as night vision goggles, brazenly use chainsaws to carve out the rhino horn or remove elephant tusks. Veteran Kenyan conservationist Richard Leakey has now warned that drastic action must be taken, saying that known ring-leaders in Kenya are operating with outrageous impunity. The rise in poaching, with animals being slaughtered inside even the most heavily guarded national parks or conservation areas, show that the poachers have little fear of tough new laws designed to stem the wave of killings, he said. They could not operate with the impunity we are seeing if you did not have some form of protection from law enforcement agencies, Leakey said, as he made an appeal for Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta to take action. It is a problem of a few criminals the ringleaders are known, he added, claiming that a core group of around 20 to 30 people were organising the mass poaching but that none had faced justice.

Could New Contact Lenses Provide “Night Vision” ?

Unfortunately, because it is so thin graphene can only absorb about 2.3 percent of the light that hits it which is not enough to generate an electrical signal. This signal is a must in order for it to operate as an infrared sensor. The challenge for the current generation of graphene-based detectors is that their sensitivity is typically very poor, said Zhaohui Zhong, assistant professor at the University of Michigan, in a press release. Its a hundred to a thousand times lower than what a commercial device would require. To clear this hurdle, researchers devised a new method for generating the electrical signal. According to the article published in the journal Nature Nanotechnology, instead of trying to measure the electrons that are released when the light strikes the material, they amplified an electrical current that is near the electrical signals generated by the incoming light. The team sandwiched an insulator between two sheets of grapheme with a current running through the bottom sheet, such that when light hits the top sheet, electrons are freed and positively charged electron holes are generated.
