You know the police would take time to get these installed on all the cars throughout the US, but I guarantee people would outrun the cops at night by cutting all their lights and be able to get away.
Dear Buzz Gang and Crew,
This is not science fiction people....but reality.
A recent technology breakthrough is coming to the marketplace soon. With funding assistance from DARPA (Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency) and research assistance from the University of Florida, a cheap and inexpensive thin film product will soon be on the market that converts infrared light into visible light giving any visual optical device or instrument the ability to have night vision.
In short this means: cell phones with cameras, regular cameras, car wind shields, telescopes, eye glasses, and even common windows in buildings and homes can have the ability of night vision.
The safety issues for drivers in cars, buses and trucks is a definite bonus of this technology but looming in the shadows are enormous privacy issues. We have become a society of instant communications. With camera phones being so ubiquitous, can our society cope with the ease of use and availability of this technology in the marketplace? Only time will tell.
