Contact Lenses With Infrared Vision? 99

Orlando (12257) writes "A story on Singularity Hub reports that "Researchers at the University of Michigan, led by electrical engineer Zhaohui Zhong, have devised a way to capture the infrared spectrum without requiring the cooling that makes infrared goggles so cumbersome." The method uses graphene and could one day lead to ultra light weight infrared vision technology."

    Exactly. I'm not sure why it needs to jump directly to contacts. Why not just regular sunglasses? The article even says "...that makes infrared goggles so cumbersome." So, great! Now you can pack all of that down into a standard pair of glasses that you can easily put on and take off, even when your fingers are filthy from crawling in the dirt during combat.

    What fascinates me is that Dem policies also invariably make the "rich" rich even richer, while making almost everyone else (in the poor to middle class) poorer. Yet, they keep winning elections. It almost makes you believe that the public school system is producing a bunch of indoctrinated idiots.

The human mind ordinarily operates at only ten percent of its capacity -- the rest is overhead for the operating system.
