So this is the known. But what about rumors of scientific advances with something even lower profile? I heard a rumor that the Team guys who busted bin Laden might have been wearing “cat vision” contact lenses that literally give the wearer night vision for a limited time without having to wear the bulky, heavy NVGs. Now, all I’m finding on this is a mention from Popular Science back in 2004. The blink powered night vision contact lenses allow a person to see clearly in low- light environments by enhancing ambient light up to 200 per cent. These lenses use plasma technologies to eliminate the cumbersome and expensive image-intensification tubes used in convention night-vision goggles. The advantages of using the contact lenses above night-vision goggles are 1) full peripheral vision, 2) more comfortable interface, 3) a more cost-effective system, and 4) less disorientation with use.

I actually saw another article on this way back in the day claiming the technology to be a hoax. Im wondering what the members here think. Possible technology or just BS?
