How to Make Your Own Night Vision Device!




Introduction: How to Make Your Own Night Vision Device!

About: Awesome Electronics Tutorials, Projects and How To´s

In this project I will show you how to create a night vision device. It mainly consists of a security camera, a small screen and a custom PCB which features IR LEDs and an LED driver. After powering the device with a USB Type-C PD powerbank, you can basically use it to see in the dark. Let's get started!

Step 1: Watch the Video!

The video gives you all the information you need to create your own night vision device. During the next steps though, I will present you some additional information.

Step 2: Order Your Components!

Step 3: Order Your PCBs!

Here you can download the gerber files for my PCB. Use them to get your own PCBs and solder all components to one.

Step 4: 3D Print the Housing!

Here you can find the .stl files for the project. Use them to 3D print the housing and then do all the mounting and wiring.

Step 5: Success!

You did it! You just created your own night vision device!
