Night-vision scope lets anyone play vampire

More powerful than military equipment

Xenonics Holdings

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.

But Electronista says it should be noted that it's a handheld device, not one that can be affixed to your head or mounted on a helmet, despite its $1,399 price tag. That means it would be a huge disadvantage the next time you play darts after dark .
