Can somebody PLEEEEAASE make an instructable for actual night vision goggles? if one already exists can someone post it to this question? Okay, I know this question was very vague, but when I said actual night vision goggles, I meant actual, physical goggles. Not a camera effect or dress up goggles.

I first came across Elseworld Batman on Brass Goggles(a steampunk website), described as a steampunk Batman. Although he's actually from WWII and the goggles are arguably the only "steampunk" thing about him, I am still tempted to put him in the category. I have an instructable for the costume and was curious, not just if I should add it to this group, but also if anyone else would dare call this "steampunk".There's also a picture of some other goggles I made, and am thinking about doing an instructable for them as well, let me know what you think. Thanks.

I have a pair of goggles of the style featured in this instructable. The problem arises because I am nearsighted and need prescription lenses to see properly. Thus the question: Is there some website where I can give them the particulars of the lenses and have them make the lenses and cut them to fit in the goggles? FYI, they would just be 50mm circles.

HI, i was wondering if anyone knew about someway to make something like a non-electric endiscope system. I need something like a tube for light, so i could look in at one end and see what is on the other end, and i need it to be non-electric. Or i could use something like a lens so that it can have light come in and out at an angle. If you need to know moke, i'm using it for "chameleon goggles" so that i can look in two diferent ajustable angles at once similar to what a real chameleon's eyes can do (if you don't know what i mean look it up), and if you have any sugestions on what i could do please post them it would be a huge help.

Asked by a_k_a__wolfboy 8 years ago
Would it be possible to create goggles that use a old cellphone screen and a cheap webcam and still be battery powered? I currently have two old cell phones in really good condition internally, and all that would be left is the webcam and the LEDs. If this turns out correctly it should be able to view IR light fairly well. Hopefully it will work the same as the shown goggles but not as bulky.

I want to make a pair of night vision goggles by placing a night vision camera outside the goggles, and a LCD screen inside, The problem is, I don't know where to find a camer that has a detatchable screen, I have a security camera, but it only hooks up to RCA. I don't know where to find a screen. Is there a way to disassemble a regular camera, and isolate the screen?

Hey everyone, I would like some help finding some fpv goggles for a big project I am working on. I am looking for something that has two eye pieces (a display for each eye) so I can get depth perception out of it, with a rather small profile something like this: Example Goggles:https://www.aliexpress.com/item/In-Stock-Skyzone-SKY02S-V-3D-5-8G-48CH-FPV-Goggles-With-Transmitter-Camera-Head-Tracking/32813350842.html?spm=2114.search0104.3.16.Hw9RjX&ws_ab_test=searchweb0_0,searchweb201602_5_10152_10065_10151_10068_10084_10083_10119_5400015_10080_10307_10082_10081_5390015_10110_10137_10175_10111_10060_10112_10113_10155_10114_10154_10056_10055_10054_5370015_10312_10313_10059_100031_10099_10078_10079_5380015_10103_10073_10102_10120_10052_10053_10142_10107_10050_10051,searchweb201603_2,ppcSwitch_5&btsid=a608c8aa-657c-4a80-bb79-3a6fe633d1c0&algo_expid=d18d9248-7548-44db-95a6-3cb9578d9ebd-2&algo_pvid=d18d9248-7548-44db-95a6-3cb9578d9ebd But I don't need all that wireless circuitry, just the displays and ideally an HDMI port for each one, thou one would suffice. If any one can make a recommendation to one that is already on the market place, or point me in a direction to make my own (type of displays, and where to get them ect ect) I would much appreciate it. PS. I do have a limited budget hence me not buying that particular set and getting it over and done with =P

I am wanting to make night vision goggles and plan on using infra red light to see. I plan on having el cheapo cellphon cameras or other camera mounted on the lense and having IR LEDs mounted on to to provide the light. I have a picture created in photoshop to show my idea.

Asked by wizerd 745 8 years ago
I have read and watched a couple of videos about making night vision involving welding masks, sun glasses, digital cameras ect. i was tempted to make the sun glasses attached with lcd lights, but the brightness may be a issue. I thought of doing it with a pair of goggles like snowboarding goggles with the red and blue paper but im not sure how i would house the power supply for led's. What i would like to do is get a webcam and make it inferred and add extra Led lights, and situate this on top of the goggles visor then because i have a broken PSP (i say broke someone stole the battery and i just haven't used it in 2 years) wire that to the camera if possible so the PSP receives the picture and can power the LED's and camera. Then make a housing for it to sit in front of the visor. That would make a great pair of goggles to go paint balling with. If that isn't possible what would be better using the red and blue paper, removing the the webcam internals and fill the housing with led's powered by a battery, Still situated on the top of the goggles. Or taping a digital camera instead of the PSP camera to it. What would have better quality for inferred? There's no point me demolishing a camera or a PSP if adding paper to the lens does as good of a job

Most everyone knows that night vision, be it infrared, or ultraviolet, or some combination of colors, requires a filter, or filters and a compatible light source. My question is, could the filters be printed out on transparent inkjet printable vinyl and applied to a plastic, or glass lens to achieve the same objective? And if so, would it work as well? What more can I say? I'm into cheap methods of doing things. The inkjet printable vinyl I mentioned is available from sellers on eBay and any pair of glasses, including safety glasses for wood and metal working are a likely item to apply the material to.

I've read god knows how many tutorials on making steampunk goggles, and i've got it down pat. i really want to start making my own, but i can't find metal rings for the lenses. i'd really like to use real metal rather than other stuff (plastic, cardboard) painted with metallic paint. srsly, i've looked around. mason jars can be used, but i can't find them. i've also been told that threaded couplings are good but they look more like tubes rather than rings. what do you think i should use? maybe you guys could try and help name some motorcycle / car / plumbing parts that you think are suitable. i'd like something that looks as heavy-duty as the rings on these: https://www.instructables.com/id/Goggles-2/ maybe if i knew what part EXACTLY i'm looking for, maybe it'd be easier for me to look. seriously i'm an idiot when it comes to this; i've only found out what a "threaded coupling" looks like recently. also we don't have hobby lobby or any of your fabulous hobby stores here, so yeah. i'm also an idiot when it comes to cutting metal parts, so maybe suggest parts that don't need much prep. thanks!

Ok, i have been looking over the internet for a while now trying to get some sweet video goggles or a video headset like ipod video goggles but for my computer screen. the best i can come up with are in the range of $299.99 to $1K+. i was looking at the lady gaga video glasses tutorial and thought that i could hack the input on those tiny screens and slap a vga cable on it, glue it up with a set of gem magnifier glasses and be watching a video in no time. this is not easy, i don't know how to splice up the wires and connect them up, i don't know how bad this would be for your eyes and most importantly i don't know how to make my computer see this new VGA cable as a monitor. Anybody with the brains feel like mocking this up? i think it would be amazing if we could get this in. Id even be willing to guess a fast track to getting it working right would be with something like the usb desktop extender seen in the link below. http://www.walmart.com/ip/StarTech.com-USB2VGAE2-USB-VGA-External-Monitor-Video-Adapter/13215071?wmlspartner=GPA&sourceid=44444444440261298289 Thanks!

So I just got some of these ridiculous glasses from my grandpa. They are advertised as hands-free binoculars, and claim to solve all those issues you had with normal binoculars (?) Anyway, they are terrible, their lens quality is crap, their focus sensitivity is terrible, they are uncomfortable, and make you look like a complete fool. Anyway, ideas about what to make with these things? Might as well make something useful with them. I was thinking a pair of opera glasses, there are three sets of lenses in the goggles. The plastic frame and focus assembly are pretty weak and can't support much, but could be steampunked or something. Any ideas appreciated.

Ok, so i am working on building a pair of Infrared night vision goggles, I have a $0 budget, so am making this entirely from recycled materials and material i already own, so please no suggestions requiring me to make a purchase, please :) here is my issue: I already have a camera that i am modifying to view infrared only, and i want to have the LCD screen go further from the camera than its ribbon cable will allow. i have considered cutting the ribbon wire and splicing wires between the two ends, but im afraid that it won't work and then i will have no ribon cable at all, and thus of course no screen. so if anyone has any solutions, that would be great

I know they many people who visit this site also visit brassgoggles.co.uk and the accompanying forum, and i know there's quite a lot of overlap between these two sites, with members migrating here, to show off their work, for example; Heresyoftruth and aintmicheal. For the past few days, i've not been able to access the site, nor its forum from any of the computers i've tried with. All i get is a screen that tells me: "Error establishing a database connection This either means that the username and password information in your wp-config.php file is incorrect or we can't contact the database server at 220.127.116.11. This could mean your host's database server is down." Does anyone have any idea what's going on? Has anyone heard from a moderator, or do they know where i can contact a mod? I'm starting to get worried about this.

Asked by The Ideanator 8 years ago
I've been doing some reading recently on how the mind can adapt and change it's perception of reality to accommodate new sensory inputs - like the glasses for the blind that turn visual data into sound patterns and the compass belt that helped give people an innate sense of direction. My idea was to take a series of small webcams and arrange them on a headband so that they cover a 360 degree panorama around the wearer, then join all the images together and feed it to a set of video goggles. Initially I imagine it would be very disorientating, but hopefully after a while the wearer's mind would start to compensate for the distortion, giving them panoramic vision. I assume the various feeds from the webcams would have to be routed through a computer to process them into a single image, but I'm not sure how that could be done on a software level. Thoughts? Ideas? Help? Warnings? All appreciated. Thanks once again.

My school recently bought a few pairs of "beer goggles" apparently these are goggles that when are put on simulate being drunk! How on earth does this work, "DRUNK BUSTERS Impairment GogglesÃ¢ÂÂ¢ simulate effects of impairment, including reduced alertness, slowed reaction time, confusion, visual distortion, alteration of depth and distance perception, reduction of peripheral vision, poor judgement and decision making, double vision, and lack of muscular coordination. For some people, impairment might result after as little as one drink." I will be going into the gym with my health class to attempt to play basketball tomorrow or monday. But until then I am curious as to how these work. http://www.drunkbusters.com/store/shopexd.asp?id=19

Here's a cool new use for the Wii. Instead of holding the Wii remote in his hands, Johnny Lee, a PhD student at Carnegie Mellon, puts the Wii remote on the TV and puts a couple of IR LEDs on a pair of goggles, reversing the usual setup. This way the TV knows where he is and can adjust the image on the screen for a nice 3D effect.He explains the setup and starts the comparison of normal vs. his Wii VR at 2:30.via Neatorama

Hi Everyone, I am trying to make my own night vision headset/goggles following this kiplay's guide. I have a electric viewfinder from an old JVC GR-AX5 video camera. I have removed the viewfinder and dismantled it but I am not sure which of the 7 cables are, (i.e. ground, power, video etc). How would I identify this, and could you please go in-depth as I am not hugely experienced in electronics, but I am learning. I have enclosed pictures, if that helps, but I do apologise for the poor quality. As the picture is hard to tell, the cable colours are (not in this order); Black, white, red, redy/brown (i am unsure, i am colourblind), yellow, orangey and a pinky purply colur. How do I identify them? On a second note, for anyone who has followed this tutorial, can you recommend a good camera to get in the UK? Many thanks, and I hope someone can come through for me, Alex
