A night-vision dart launcher

Combo night goggles and dart gun

Ever since seeing "Silence of the Lambs," we just haven't been able to think of night-vision goggles the same way. But this toy may have resurrected its image as something other than a surveillance tool for serial killers.

The Discovery store is selling a pair of the nocturnal lenses that can shoot darts, according to Coolest Gadgets. And they're even the old-fashioned kind with rubber tips that can stick to the foreheads of your targets--lessening the chances of recurring nightmares we might have about more sinister uses.
