EyeClops Night Vision

The EyeClops Night Vision Infrared Stealth Goggles are really impressive. After playing with these for a while we completely understood why it is hot on tween's wish lists.

These actually use infrared night vision technology to allow you to see pretty clearly for up to 50 feet. We were amazed. This takes playing hide and seek to a whole new level. We have seen nothing else out there like it. Now there are a few things I would make note of. First it works best in complete darkness. Street lights can throw off the visual and appear way too bright.

Second, it is infra-red technology so the images will not be as clear as daylight, they will appear in false color, hues of green or black & white.

Third, until you are completely used to wearing them you should exercise caution. It is not the same as walking around in the daytime; you have to move your entire head to see areas around you. Because you are really only looking out of one eye you have a lack of peripheral vision and loss of depth perception. It does take some getting used to. It is advised that you walk not run while wearing them. The instruction booklet includes a recommended safety list; I highly recommend you give it a read! The goggles are pretty big but surprisingly comfortable for the size. The straps are adjustable and it is pretty well padded. Although we found that they can be a bit snug over some larger eye glasses. The crew thought that they were so cool and had such a good time using them that they didn't even feel them on their heads. We had a couple of instances where the camera lens fogged up, but we believe that had to do with indoor to outdoor temperature change.

The EyeClops Night Vision Goggles have two brightness modes, one better for near sighted the other far sighted. There is one screen inside, centered to user's right eye; the left eye piece has a flip open lens cover witch you can open to see in the light. The night vision goggles require 5 AA batteries, which last somewhere up to 3 hours. You will need extra if you're planning on using them for awhile.
