In the event that somebody missed it, I'm reposting this old archived link from NASA because even though it's old and it's been done a couple more times now, it's still awesome for music theory and space nerds:

Default Scientists Develop Full-Color Night Vision

Scientists Develop Full-Color Night Vision

The following picture and videos were recorded in complete darkness.







Quote:
There is no question that night vision technology has revolutionized the way wars are fought, particularly among Americaís special operations community. That said, anyone whoís been stuck wearing the sort of night vision goggles [NVGs] that find their way into the hands of conventional forces can attest that television rarely provides an accurate portrayal of how tough it can be to function with them strapped to your head.

The wearer must often adjust the focus of the goggles by hand, which means removing at least one hand from oneís weapon. It also means that without constant adjustments, oneís field of view lacks any real sense of depth. Aside from the constant need for adjustments, the wearerís complete lack of peripheral vision [with the exception of the alien-looking L-3 setup used by special operators] makes night vision only slightly less dangerous than closing your eyes and hoping you donít trip.


Of course, these problems arenít because the technology for better night vision doesnít exist; itís simply a matter of making the technology more cost effective so conventional troops can get their hands on more capable gear for less money. The need just isnít there for conventional troops to receive the latest and greatest in NVG tech, but with each advancement in this realm comes a reduction in cost for last yearís breakthroughs.

And let there be no mistake, there have been breakthroughs. Night vision has historically come in shades of greenóthatís not a tech issue, but a human one. The human eye, adept as it is at interpreting reflected light as the world around us, can only register and process so much at once. Through extensive experimentation, shades of green proved to be easiest for the human eye to distinguish between, and as such, green was adopted as the monochrome color of choice for night vision tech. In truth, these goggles could display images in any color depending on how we built themóit would just limit our ability to interpret the images on the lens.


But what if we could do away with that monochrome idea altogether? After all, the human eye is great at picking out threats against a well-lit, daytime backdrop. Thatís where SPi Infraredís X28 night vision system comes in.

These images were recorded using SPiís camera, which is not currently available as a wearable night vision rig, but as this technology continues to mature, itís likely Americaís special operations troops will soon enjoy the same level of detail and clarity during nighttime operations as they do during the day. As for the conventional side, chances are good theyíll be upgraded to something that keeps them from tripping over their own feet in the years to come, too.
