Night Vision camera

I just picked up a pair of the eyeclops nightvision monocle for $50 after screwing with a pair a friend has, i have been messing with them and despite the fact they look like a toy, they are pretty impressive. I plan on modifying them so their less design oriented and more practical.My question to anyone who knows about or has a pair of these how hard would it be to hook a camera up to them. my plan is to take a webcam and remove its camera then solder wires from the webcam to the camera on the monocle. anyone else have any ideas?http://egeste.net/wp-content/uploads/2009/01/jakks_nightvision_goggles.jpg

How do I conctruct a powerful night vision flashlight?

I want to build a powerful night vision flashlight that is capable of producing a bright enough beam of light that it will travel at least 75 yards or so. I want to use this light for hunting wild hogs at night. The light needs to be visible to humans but not to animals. I want to try to build one instead of spending thousands on some of those fancy ones .It only needs to be transported to and from the stand so it does not have to be a light hand held flashlight. I am wondering if some kind of night vision Q Beam is possible. That would be perfect. It is fine if the unit is heavy due to batteries or whatever because it will be transported by a four wheeler.

How wood you get a night vision video camera in a package with enough power and memory to store 8 hours of taping?

I have a new test I would like to perform. this test involves puting at least three night vision camera's in a package and ship it to my house and then back to my work place. I would like to have the video camera record as long as possilbe and store the information so it can be down loaded and viewed after the shipping. I already have 6 30-LED infrared night vision CCtv wireless security cameras. I think one will run for about 8 hours if I have an 12v square battery. the camera has an RCA jack (yellow). so I would need a memory device that would link up to this and store the 8 hour time frame with no sound of course. I would also like to have it in a digital fromate if possible. My classes are keeping me jumping and work is hurried as well. I will keep working on this but if any of you have alternates ideals or somthing that will work with I got, I will be gratful to hear it. thank you. oh ya work is paying for parts so cost of this is not an issue for me at this point.

MEng Project: Vision-Led SLAM

Hi, I know Ive missed this competition but I am about to start a big project and wanted to share my ideas with some like-minded individuals who may have some suggestions. I am about to embark on a 4th year university project involving doing something clever with an iRobot Create. I am looking towards approaching the problem of location recognition in mobile robots by attaching a command module and a webcam to the robot and using computer vision (CV) methods to identify landmarks. I thought an interesting goal would be to get the robot to map a floor of my department building. After that it might attempt to classify distinct rooms. There is a white board on the wall of a corridor that the robot could potentially locate and possibly draw on with the use of a robotic arm. The ultimate goal of this project could then be to get the robot to draw a map of the floor on the white board (perhaps a bit excessive). I am aware this project would involve implementing SLAM, integrating the map data with feature information from CV-processed real-time images and developing some kind of recognition determination model (i.e. neural networks or something). After that I clueless. I have never even looked at a robot before, but Im really excited about finally having a go. I would really appreciate it if anyone has any thoughts or relevant experiences or warnings :) then please let me know! Also, any other ideas for what I could do with the iRobot, a camera and 6 months ;) Cheers, Tom PS Ive never seen this site before and it is awesome! I want to read everything :D

Eyeclops night vision 2 review

              I haven't used the eyeclops night vision 1, so I can't make any comparisons. From the photographs, you can see two sets of lights on either side and a ring of leds around the camera lens. When in low power or "stealth" mode, only the lights on the sides are on. In the dark, the glow very dimly, you have to be 3 feet or less to see  them glow and it's still very dim. When in long range mode, the lights on the sides turn off, replaced by the circle of lights in the middle. These are clearly visible at close range, even in daytime, although still with less intensity as a red led. The knob toward the eyepiece is for adjustment of eye. I don't see what it does. The knob on the end near the camera adjusts focus. Seeing things at long range clearly and close range clearly require different adjustments. It's real infrared technology. You can switch between "military" and "spy" The difference between "military" and "spy isn't much. One of them is normal, infrared vision, and the other applies a green layer, making it seem like the view from COD. The 6 knobs along the middle don't do anything.  It uses 7.5 volts using 5 AA batteries. There there is only one LCD, despite it claiming dual LCD technology. The skirt on the eyepiece is detachable. The strap feels pretty cheap, I plan on making it into a head light sort of thing later with paracord or elastics. Objects appear closer and you have no peripheral vision though. The latter problem is something all night vision goggles have. Overall, it's not a bad deal for a $50 toy. The most annyoing thing is that the dials are a bit loose, so running or shaking them makes a rattling sound, giving away your position if you were doing covert sneaking around or playing a prank.        This is useful for scanning an area in the dark without revealing your location. It's also useful for night spying. What this toy cannot do is read words or anything in detail the size of words. Although navigation is possible, the lack or peripheral vision is a problem. Possible Mods: Add an airsoft or rc car battery to replace the 5 AA batteries. The half near the eye piece can be cut off I think. You would have to add a new compartment for the batteries though and the light from the LCD would leak out. I would add a strap of two so you can use it hands free. I would also attach a smal telescope or lens backward so objects appear normal distance. The peripheral vision problem could hypothetically be solved the same way people make DIY fisheye lenses. Extra infrared LEDs flashlights and other lights could be added around a house, allowing you to cover up the lights, not exposing your position. Another idea is infrared led throwies. They would function like NATO infrared glow sticks, allowing people to track a certain target or where to fire.

Making night vision goggles

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

cheap & easy way to do optical mark recognition (omr) or crude image scanning / processing?

What's a cheap & easy but reliable way to scan a crude drawing or do omr - optical mark recognition - ie read marks on paper like the forms you fill out with a #2 pencil ? I envision something like a row of 8 lights sensors spaced to match the lines on a 3x5 index card, you feed the card into guides aligning the lines with the sensors. Or get some graph paper & scissors and cut out some 3x5 cards. Perhaps this could be a crude scanner to scan simple drawngs at whatever resolution matches the spacing of the sensors (width of drawing would be limited to # of sensors, the length limited to arduino's memory/storage). You could hand-feed a 3x5 card with a drawing through it, the horizontal resolution would be the spacing of the sensors, maybe have some kind of roller to track the card being fed through so it knows to scan another line. I know there are sensors used by line-following robots, but what about a simple light sensor? Or buying a cheap camera element and hooking that up to a video input and processing the image inside arduino? Or processing input from composite video? Any thoughts?

Film maker needs help!

Hey guys, So I'm an experimental a 21 year old film maker. Basically I try to innovate with film and perception which is how I won the Sheridan College Media arts award for experimental film making last year (this is however why I'm expected to make something great this year). My latest notion is in spinning camera's. If a camera is spinning (attached to the end of a drill let say) you get a blur but  because I'm an animator I'm familiar with the persistence of vision. This is a frequent DIYS project (persistence of vision clocks) from what I can tell. I need to create a very simple 5 or 6 led light that, when a camera is spinning in front of it, will display what ever I wish (text, images, ect). So instead of the lights spinning the camera is. Obviously more LED's the more complicated it can be. Now... I don't know where to begin with my questions. Could I pay you to create user friendly software and hardware? Are you willing to help for recognition purposes? Can you only make software? Can you only make hardware? Where do I begin to inquire? I guess this project is for those who are interested in innovation more than anything... I really need a community of friends on this one :(

Isolating the lens assembly and LCD from a digital camera

Hello, Instructablers, I hope you can help. I'm trying to make a functional pair of night vision goggles based on the premise that digital camera photosensors detect IR range light while the human eye cannot. I have an old, functional Sony cybershot that I'm willing to scrap for the job, but the innards are far more complicated than I was expecting. As I am trying for a wearable, head mounted unit, I would like to shave off as much bulk from the camera unit as possible -- I do not, after all, still need picture taking capability anymore, merely a digital display. Any suggestions on where to begin? EDIT: Correct me if I'm wrong, but the more I think about this the more it seems like it would be more practical to buy a standalone microcamera and mini LCD. However, what method of output and input would these typically use? Would a simple microcontroller like Arduino suffice to perform all the necessary processing to feed video from the camera to the display? Does any of this even sound reasonable? Thanks in advance and sorry if photography isn't the right section for this, Ninepound

Automatic Insect Painting/Gluing Device for Scientists? Answered

Scientists studying small insects need ways to assign a unique ID to each bug. Two of the most common methods they use are A) manually painting small color patterns onto the thorax (and sometimes head and abdomen) of the insect, and B) gluing a small tag(number, qr code, RFID chip) to the thorax. These techniques are very effective, but SUPER TIME CONSUMING. It can take a trained student about 5 minutes to paint each ant or bee (and they need to paint thousands). I want to help them out by decreasing the amount of man power needed to give a unique ID to each insect. My thoughts were to make a device where an insect could walk into a tube of designated size (exact bee space at the entrance of a bee hive for instance), have its presence sensed, maybe prevent it's forward or backward motion for a short while,  and have a device that attaches a tag or paints a unique pattern onto the insect. You can see some of my initial thoughts in the scanned picture below. HIGH RES HERE My question is about good places to start in building this contraption, or if anyone has good or simple . The thresholds are quite small for the insects (bees are maybe 1/8-1/4 inch wide), and we need to be exact where we attach the tag so as not to hurt the poor critters or alter their behavior. I am handy with an arduino and simple servos and can incorporate computer vision from an android phone into the mix with the ADK First elaborate or super cool response gets gifted a 3 month pro membership!

"...In 2000, General Motors offered a thermal night-vision system in its Cadillac line of vehicles. The system was innovative, but it was also expensive and didn't produce very clear images. Toyota also gave night vision a shot, and even now the automaker continues to offer an in-dash system in some Lexus models. The Lexus system has its fans, but if it's so effective, then why hasn't this technology spread to every vehicle on the road? One theory is that it seems as if the technology just isn't fully ready for automotive applications. Not yet, anyway. As you can imagine, night-vision technology is expensive and if you use inexpensive components, the quality simply won't be there.  Two of Germany's automotive stalwarts, BMW and Mercedes-Benz, have taken a damn-the-torpedoes approach to in-dash night-vision systems.
