    NightVision Cellphones, Eyeglasses, and Windshields?!

    A friend of mine sent me this article this afternoon.

    Adapting technology found in flat screen television sets, scientists have created a thin film that converts infrared light into visible light. The technology could give cell phones, eyeglasses and car windshields cheap, lightweight night vision.


    "This device can convert any infrared image into a visible image and would weigh no more than a pair of eyeglasses," said Franky So, a scientist at the University of Florida who describes his new night vision technology in a recent article in the journal Advanced Materials that was funded in part by advanced technology powerhouse DARPA.
    Obviously this kind of thing would be awesome to have, current Gen III+ NVD's (Night Vision Devices) run several thousand dollars and burn through battery's. This kind of thing could become very inexpensive and have extremely good battery life. Woot

    I personally can't wait for a pair of night vision eyeglasses

    didnt read the article but, infrared isnt like night vision.
    infrared sees immited heat(temperatuur) waves so im curious as to how it works since night vision usually involves magnifying the little light there is
