You may have played video games such as Call of Duty or Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell, where the Night Vision Goggles play a massive role in defeating the bad guys. Clearly, they are used in real war as well, but most of us stay well away from all that danger and prefer the safer option of dancing around the garden with plastic Kalashnikov’s that make a funny clicking sound when you pull the trigger.
Well you get the idea…
Now you can make the experience a far more authentic one, the Night Vision Goggles can give you vision of up to 15 metres in almost pitch darkness.
The technology behind them is an infrared light which is barely visible to the naked eye even in the darkest of dark places. The brightness settings are adjustable so you can have clear vision depending on the distance or darkness of your environment. There is also an adjustable head strap so it can fit on most people’s head.
The price for these Night Vision Goggles is a little hefty at £99.99 which means it can be a great gift for children this Christmas, but is a lot more expensive than some of the regular toys you may be considering buying, so maybe more one for the big kids. Alternatively, you could spend a bit less and get a Night Vision Digital Video Camera for under £70.
They do look quite cool and your (big) kid’s friends will clearly be jealous if yours is wearing one of these next time they get out the guns…or decide to play Pictionary in the dark like the Totally Rad Show guys did when they got a similar (but different) pair of night vision goggles with their Modern Warfare 2 game!…Now there’s a new party game to try, I wonder what other games could be played in the dark?
