The kids in horror-thriller flick I Know What You Did Last Summer wouldn’t have knocked into someone if they could actually see in the dark while driving down that creepy road. I know for sure the movie wouldn’t have a story if they had the Lanmodo Vast Pro, a night vision system for automobiles. Lanmodo Vast Pro is essentially a camera with night vision capability and screen combo that lends you the ability to see in poor visibility conditions, such as in the night without street lights, or when it is snowing or when the area is shrouded in fog, for examples.

Don’t you just look forward to future? Even more so when some of those future, almost sci-fi stuff happens around now? Like for example, seeing in the dark without the aid of night vision optics or flashlight? It sure sounds like something pulled from pages of Marvel comics, doesn’t it? Actually, not quite, because night vision without hardware aid is a reality as proven by a group of independent scientists from Tehachapi, California known as Science for the Masses. Science for the Masses, who is 100 percent not affiliated with any academic institutions and government, has posted an open source research document on this experiment.

technology can help us, but it can also be a threat, depending on which side you are on. hold on right there. we are not talking about the fabled Skynet, though we love to make references to it; we are talking about the Striker II Helmet-Mounted Display (HMD) which British defence, security and aerospace company BAE Systems’ debuted a few months ago at the Farnborough Airshow. as the name implies, it is the second generation HMD that’s packed with advanced imaging and tracking technology that would make a proficient pilot even more deadlier.

scouting your prey in the dark can be an expensive and unfruitful event. seriously, if you think about it, the initial investment for a night vision mono- or binocular is not cheap and even if you have that already, you’d be just watching and not be able to relive those moments at a later time. thankfully, there’s the Night Vision Scope Camera that is not only affordable, but also one that allows you to observe and record. costing a mere 19,800 Japanese money or around 195 bucks, it offers seven adjustable IR levels for night observation and packs a 1/5″ CMOS sensor for capturing stills of 640 x 480 resolution and videos of up to 640 x 480 resolution at 25 fps. though it is noteworthy that video footage does without audio, which can be quite a bummer for some. the device offers 3X power telescope and 2X digital zoom for observing and recording distant objects and has an effective visible distant in the dark of up to 100 meters (330 feet), which should be ample for most regular applications.

for those who have used night vision capable video camera would be familiar with the green footages associated with it. however, the green footages could be a thing of the past with the newly developed color night vision technology that lets the camera sees red, blue and green objects using highly sensitive infrared photography technology. developed by AIST, this new technology would no doubt benefit a wide spectrum of field, including security and wildlife observation.
in term of security application, footages from this new night vision technology could let investigators easily identify the perpetrator’s clothing or automobile color, which at the present moment, are all in greenish perspective. this would means more accurate identification and hopefully, an earlier arrest of the culprits. the continual research and product development will be carried out by Nanolux Research, an AIST venture for technology transfer.
AIST has planned for a more compact and higher performance, commercial version camera based on this new development and it will try to make this new night vision camera less expensive then the current security cameras in the market.
