Other potential users include sportsmen, surveillance professionals and broadcasters. “This adapter really is a game changer,” said NightVisionExperts.com Director Stewart Firman. “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.

Too Much Night Vision In Malaysian Found-Footage ‘Ia Wujud’ –

While it is possible that these figments are triggered in the brain, it seems more likely that the retina, perhaps even the photopigments themselves, are directly sensing energy deposited by the rays and realizing it as light. With the right photopigment, seamless detection of IR should be a piece of cake. The only problem is that lack of vitamin A claims the lives of around a million children worldwide each year, and it is responsible for blindness in half that again. An intrepid group of four biohackers hope that the replacement form of vitamin A, known as vitamin A2, will compensate completely. A2 is found in freshwater fish, and can be extracted (with some effort) from their livers. The group has created a project based on a Microryza crowdfunding model, and is now funded to the tune of $4,000. (Read: Seeing ultraviolet, exploring color .) This is what our intrepid senior editor, Sebastian Anthony, looks like with thermal IR.

Soon, night vision contact lenses – HispanicBusiness.com

Using a Third Generation intensifier for improved image clarity, the device offers 1x magnification and features a bright-light cut-off system to protect the tube from bright light. The monocular uses a single AA battery, which lasts 40 hours and the device weighs in at just over half a pound. In addition to the monocular, the company also makes compact and lightweight Binocular Night Vision Devices, which use Third Generation intensifier tubes. Although they weigh only a pound, the binoculars give their users improved peripheral night vision as binoculars. The design allows them to remain low-profile and rotate to a stowed position against the helmet and officers can also use a single tube as a monocular.

Below is the first footage from Ia Wujud (It Exists), directed by Dharma Aizat. Heres a loose translation: Tells of a group of teenagers who entered the abandoned theme park called Mimaland. This story takes place before the phenomenon of horror stories in the Highland Tower. They thought ghosts did not exist and tried to play a game of spirit of the coin in the abandoned theme park.

The adapter can be used with several night vision and thermal imaging devices

Electrical Engineers, , at the University of Michigan discovered a method to sense infrared light using two layers of an atom-thick layer of carbon, known as graphene, the Verge reported. Instead of relying directly on the graphene’s sensitivity to light, Norris and Zhong measured an electrical current running alongside the graphene layer. Their findings revealed that as light hits the top graphene layer, it leaves a measurable impact on the flow of electricity below it and produces an electrical signal which could display a night vision image. Zhong said integrated with a contact lens or other wearable electronics, it expands your vision. The findings have been published in journal Nature Nanotechnology.
