Rumor Claims Military Testing Night Vision Contact Lenses

 |  |  |  |  |  June 29, 2011


Certainly one of the biggest stories of the year so far has been the death of Bin Laden at the hands of the U.S. military. The tech used in that raid that netted the most wanted man in the world has been the stuff of much discussion including the special stealth helicopter that was used. Another rumor is floating around that the operators that took part in the raid were using night vision equipment that wasn’t the typical goggles we see on TV.

Night vision Contacts

According to the rumors, the soldiers were using night vision contact lenses. The lenses are claimed to get power by magnetic induction. The wearer would put a gel with a strong magnet on the eyelids and each time they blink the lenses would be charged. That is so awesome – assuming it’s more than a rumor.

PitchBlack

Contacts for night vision would be very cool because the wearer would get their peripheral vision back. Peripheral vision is lost with the wearing of normal night vision goggles. This may well have no truth to it, but I could see the army fielding some straight up Pitch Black sci-fi contacts.
