Injecting night vision into your eyeballs might be the wave of the future.
Lasik surgery is a common procedure for correcting vision. What is the next step? A night vision compound injected right into your eyeballs. Yes, you read that right.
This one is straight out of science fiction. Please do not try this at home.
Biohackers from Tehachapi, California think they figured out how to make human night vision a reality. They use a chlorophyll analog called Chlorin e6, or Ce6, which is found in certain deep sea fish species.
Team biochem researcher Gabriel Licina volunteered as the guinea pig.
The team applied 50 microliters of Ce6, an extremely low dose, and they waited an hour. Then they began testing in a dark wooded area. The test subject was able to spot objects and people up to 50 meters away.
Is this the future of night vision for hunters? You be the judge.
I think I’ll will stick with the electronic night vision for now.
