Night Vision Goggle

I would say that whilst the [British] Air Ministry were happy to go along with the story [of carrot-improved vision], they never set out to use it to fool the Germans, Legate says. The German intelligence service were well aware of our ground-based radar installation and would not be surprised by the existence of radar in aircraft. In fact, the RAF were able to confirm the existence of German airborne radar simply by fitting commercial radios into a bomber and flying over France listening to the various radio frequencies! he adds. Yet the question remains: Are carrots truly able to improve eyesight or is that the stuff of fiction? The answer is yes, under certain conditions, eating carrots will help improve eyesight.

It’s because alcohol disturbs the tear-film that covers the surface of their eyes, leading to deterioration of vision. Alcohol consumption markedly impairs night-vision because it increases the perception of halos (luminous circles) and other visual night-time disturbances, a new study shows. “This is because ethanol from alcoholic drinks passes into the tear and disturbs the outermost layer of the tear-film – the lipid layer – facilitating the evaporation of the aqueous part of the tear,” said principal author of the study Jose Juan Castro from University of Granada, Spain.

“By integrating their iPhones and night vision scopes, professionals in the field can take the individual situational awareness that they currently enjoy to the next level team-based shared awareness. For command and control, shared awareness supercharges their ability to plan, direct and control a networked emergency response.” Like anything night vision, the iPhone Adapter isn’t exactly cheap. It costs US$269, and that’s before you factor in the cost of the night vision scope or iPhone itself. It’s currently offered free with the purchase of specific night vision goggles and scopes, but both of those cost more than $3,500.
