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

Step 1: Materials you need

# red and blue theatrical sheets
# infrared leds 4 to 5
# cheap glasses 
# coin cell or button cell get 6volts at least max 9volts 
# switch 

or
*clear transparent sheet
*blue and red permanent marker
*infrared leds 
*cheap glasses 
*and coin cell along with a switch

or 

@ 2 3d goggles
@infrared leds
@coin cells and switch
 
Cool ideas! very inventive!

thank you very much
Good job,but just to make sure Im right,theyll be one red and one blue on each lens.Couldnt I also use a remote to illuminate where Id like to see.

Hey so I made this using method 2 for a school project. And I was trying to see if it worked using remote controls just to try and see it in the dark and it didn't workout. Do I need multiple LEDs so it is bright enough or whatever to see? So I am wondering what I may have done wrong, like the plastic sheets I used a laminated like thing you put in binders to protect paper... was there a specific sheet I should have used maybe? Please help, I don't know what to do at this point. You guys may find it interesting to know that it did however block out almost all of the lights coming out of cable boxes, except random ones on the side of it. Thanks!

hey im doing this for my science project and was wondering what one would be the best easiest and cheapest thanks.

i think mitch ... 3rd method is chearest but 2nd is best than others.

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
