Picture of make your own NIGHT VISION GOGGLES!
Always dreamt of buying night vision goggles or making some well you are soon going to come to terms with it
basically as the name suggest it allows you to watch objets in pitch darknessNight vision is the ability to see in low light conditions. Whether by biological or technological means, night vision is made possible by a combination of two approaches: sufficient spectral range, and sufficient intensity range. Humans have poor night vision compared to many animals



well dont you want how it happens?
what we have on one eyepiece is  a red theatrical sheet over which 2blue theatrical sheets are kept .the main heart of this thing are infrared leds 

you know what the best part is ? I show you 3 different ways to make it

if your night vision scope doesnt work then get a clear sheet and put some phospher coating on it .it sounds very difficult all you got to do is go to the store where phospher is available and ask him to do it for you .though its very rare that this would happen
