We're no experts on night-vision technology, especially under water, but this is one item that seems to have extremely limited utility. As far as we can tell, the "Marine 2" scope is a waterproof device that provides night vision but with only 2x magnification and apparently no camera.
So unless you're in dire need of doing crossword puzzles or reading something up-close in the pitch-dark seas, we're not quite sure why anyone would want to spend 295 pounds (about $588) for one of these Spycatcher gadgets. Moreover, if this is meant to be a covert … Read more
If you're a parent like us, you may have discovered a couple of dirty little secrets: Diaper Genies break and most baby monitors suck. We can't offer much about the first issue, but we're told that the second is making some significant advances.
U.K.-based Digitally Fresh, for example, has combined a video monitor and a wireless Webcam so that you can watch your precious creations as well as listen for them from anywhere in the house, according to Gearlog. But the best part? It has a night-vision camera so you make sure they're not … Read more
So let's get this straight: Night-vision devices are supposed to help you see things in the dark, like those night dart launchers, right? Not the other way around? That's what we thought, anyway, so we have no idea why anyone would want a "Night Vision WebCam."
This 1.3-megapixel camera has six infra-red LED bulbs "to light any video conversation no matter how dark the conditions may be," Coolest-Gadgets says. Silly us--we would have just turned on a lamp.
Maybe this would be useful in a dorm if you're trying not to wake … Read more
Just when we've managed to suppress the memory of Silence of the Lambs, another night-vision product comes along to start the nightmares all over again. But out of dedication to all the nocturnal Cravers out there, we'll put aside our fears (temporarily) to mention the "SuperVision" night-vision scope, which is supposedly among the most powerful of its kind on the market with better range and resolution than military-grade scopes, as well as an 8x zoom.
Blood may be thicker than water, but unfortunately they're both the same color if you're wearing night vision goggles.
The world of night vision has come a long way since the clunky, Vietnam-era starlight scopes, but it's still a monochromatic green. Tenebraex Corp. aims to fix that with a night vision filter that tricks your brain into seeing objects in different colors, The Boston Globe reported.
The ColorPath (Color Capable Night Vision Device) is mechanical, not computer based, which makes it more temperature resistant, light weight and power frugal, according to the manufacturer.
The ability to see … Read more
In an effort to address your asymmetrical puffy pocket syndrome, Creative has slimmed down its popular, yet inordinately thick, 60GB Zen Vision W and Zen Vision M players to match the thickness of their skinnier 30GB players. Presumably this is a result of slimmer hard drive technology, although the specific hard drive used is unknown. Other newsworthy specs on the player seem unchanged at first glance. Screen size, battery life, storage capacity, and operating system features are all untouched, but the thickness of the Zen Vision W drops from 26.4mm to 22mm and the Zen Vision M shrinks from … Read more
Telecom Italia and Philips Electronics spinoff Polymer Vision have announced plans to develop what they say is the first mobile device with a rollable display. Yes, the gadget clearly rolls, but we'll have to wait 'til launch later this year to see if it rocks.
While smaller than a typical mobile phone, the new device, dubbed the Cellular-book, has a display that extends up to 5 inches and can be folded and stored away when not in use. It features 16 gray levels combined with a high-contrast and high-reflectivity display to enable comfortable paperlike reading of newspapers and books, … Read more
