Eyeclops Night Vision Goggles are Awesome

page 1 2 3 4

Jakks, the toy company who introduced the terrific "Eyeclops" magnifying toy have released another mad contraption - night vision goggles!

The goggles are basically a head-mounted video camera feeding an image onto a tiny screen in front of one eye.

The video camera is very sensitive, so it can pick up infrared (IR) light. Infrared light is pretty scarce at night, so the goggles are loaded with IR light-emitting diodes (LEDs), pointing at whatever direction you are viewing, like a head-mounted flashlight which only emits light which is invisible to the naked eye.

The goggles are all black and very comfortable to wear. The rubber straps all adjust and seem very durable. The gasket which fits around your eyes is soft rubber.

The goggles contain two seperate arrays of infrared lights, a circle of 10 around the camera at the top, and a cluster of seven in front of one eye.

  • Cluster of Seven: Only emit invisible IR light. If you want to stalk around in complete darkness, these are the bulbs which will be lit. These probably emit light with a 940nm wavelength. Some sources call this a "complete lack of emission in the visible range".

  • Circle of Ten: Emit invisible and visible light. They are recessed in their housings, colored red but not at all vibrant, visually. The photo here shows them looking pink, but that is because of the limitations of (or rather extended image capability of) my camera. They probably emit light with a 880nm wavelength.

A knob at the temple switches between two arrays of bulbs, allowing the wearer to choose between low powered & completely invisible vs. high power & visible.

 

To further illustrate, pictures.

Here is a picture of me creeping through the living room with the goggles on the "low" setting.

 

 

..except my regular Canon SD790 camera can easily detect the infrared LEDs.

Here is what the low setting looks like to the naked eye.

You should get some clothes on because I can see everything.
