We’ve all wanted night vision goggles since we were kids so we could cause mischief in the dark and see what we’re doing. The only problem is that they are expensive to get, and you can only see in green. Thanks to the Nanosystem Research Division of AIST (National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology Japan), we now have a night vision camera that allows you to see colors even in pitch-black darkness.
It uses advanced algorithms to analyze reflected wavelengths from objects of different colors. Using highly sensitive infrared technology, you can now have real-time video that’s shot in the dark. This is all still in a highly developmental stage, but they’re already making plans to scale it down and put it on the market. Hopefully for a much cheaper price than the current night vision goggles as well. This will eventually lead to really awesome affordable camera that takes excellent quality photos. Or at least we can hope anyway.
