GAINESVILLE, Fla. --- Call it Nitelite: The newest app for cell phones might be night vision.
A University of Florida engineering researcher has crafted a nickel-sized imaging device that uses organic light-emitting diode technology similar to that found in cell phone or laptop screens for night vision.
