Night Vision Capable Cell Phones & Contact Lenses Are Coming Soon? Thanks To A Brand New Scientific Breakthrough They Just Might Be!

This is SO freaking cool!!! Thanks to a super smart team of researchers at the University of Michigan, night vision technology is about to get A LOT more accessible! Prior to this breakthrough, night vision could only be used with that clunky, huge goggle contraption that you see in movies, but now, thanks to Zhaohui Zhong and his team, they have made it super thin aka it’ll be much easier to integrate it into normal things! Like contact lenses! How cool would that be!?! Sure, they’d probably mostly be used for the military, but, imagine having them to walk home late at night!
