It was time for Nerf-gun wars in my jet-black basement. With the goggles, you’d see three ninjas in this picture If you become disoriented when walking around with the gogglesand with the smallish screen and lack of depth perception, it takes practice to move around effectivelyyou can flip up the plastic piece above your left eye to see things normally, though I did have problems with that flap falling off now and again. My other minor complaint is that while you can switch the view to a green mode from the standard black-and-white display, it doesn’t do anything except mimic what you’re used to seeing in movies when people wear night vision goggles. Unlike more expensive sets, this doesn’t amplify light as much as it simply picks up on infrared light, which gives the goggles some neat properties: on the highest setting, everyone’s eyes look like hollow pools of light, and your television’s remote control lights up the room like a strobe light.

Fran Gibbons, who heads the councils dog warden team, said: “Dog mess can cause blindness if an older person or young child happens to slip and get something in their eye, within months their sight could be gone. “To have someone lose their sight simply because someone was too irresponsible to clean up after their dog is unacceptable. “It’s massively unhygienic as well as dangerous and there is no excuse for not cleaning up after your dog.” Research last year found that at least a dozen local authorities in Britain used the Regulation of Investigatory Powers Act to use surveillance methods to catch pet owners letting their dogs foul pavements, parks and footpaths. However, the use of night vision equipment more commonly associated with police and military operations is understood to be a first among local authorities combating the problem. Councillor Ken Moss, who last year launched a campaign urging the government to let council raise instant dog fouling fines to 1,000, said: “Residents are completely disgusted by this problem and want to see us take action.
