The Stealth Goggles are made of kid-friendly materials and the latest high-tech technology that allows your child to explore under the cover of darkness. These state of the art infrared Stealth Goggles use an infrared light, and even contains a microscope that helps kids to explore the tiny animals and insects they otherwise wouldn't be able to see.

The EyeClops reach as far 50 feet when using the night vision infrared technology. And since these goggles emit "light" visible only to you there is no chance of scaring animals away.

And these goggles aren't just for exploring animals and insects. For instance, they can also be used instead of a flashlight to help children find their way in the dark. This can come in quiet handy when they are playing other games with their friends such as hide and seek at night. They can also be used like a flashlight. Plus with the Eyeclops portable microscope mounted atop the goggles your adventurers can see what hides in the dark and generate close-ups of whatever they focus on.

Accessories included are a safety power cord, fully-adjustable headband, and a battery pack.

They are intended to grow with your child, so it's something they will love using for years to come so you’ll get your money’s worth and inspire your kid at the same time.

How to Operate the EyeClops Night Vision Goggles

They use Real Infrared Night Vision Technology to see up to 50 ft! Invisible infrared illumination means you can see them, but they can't see you, thanks to the infrared sensitive optics & built-in LCD screen! Use them for special Missions, Covert Operations or Night Maneuvers. Get great value Eyeclops Night Vision Goggles here

There are 2 modes to the eyeclops night vision goggles.

The 1st mode is stealth mode. In stealth mode, you are undetectable because none of the infrared LEDs light up. The tradeoff with this mode is that your night vision is compromised a bit and you can't see as well as you could.

The 2nd mode is normal or greenlight mode. The LEDs on the top monocle and the right eyepiece are illuminated, which helps your night vision. In this mode, your night vision goggles work the best that they can, but you ARE detectable to others. They are a thing of beauty.

Look at the picture of the goggles, the big “eye thing” in the middle is the camera and it is the image that "it" is seeing that you see in the eyepieces. It is surrounded by some high powered infra-red LEDs which can be switched on or off. When on, they visually glow a dull red but act as a floodlight for the camera. In front of the right eye you have another bank of lower powered LEDs which do not glow when on and act as a lower-powered light source for the camera. This lets you switch between "stealth" (no glow, lower visibility) mode and "observation" (slight glow, higher visibility) mode. The left eye is covered with a simple plastic cover which is on a hinge and can be opened for a source of "normal" vision.

How Do the EyeClops Night Vision Goggles Stack Up?

Compared to other infrared night visions goggles, the EyeClops Night Vision goggles are a steal. These goggles were specifically designed as a toy for children and teenagers, but many adults will buy them and play their own spy games.

They compare well to Military Grade Night Vision Goggles which range anywhere between $300 dollars to several thousands. Save a LOT of money -see at night and/or win at laser tag and buy EyeClops Night Vision goggles. Even military grade night vision goggles have a limited field of view similar to these.

Most of us have grown up watching James Bond and his high tech gadgets, or more recently, played Special Ops type of video games at home such as Metal Gear Solid. We have got used to the idea of night vision goggles – and own up...many of us have wished we had a pair. The EyeClops Night Vision Goggles give you that chance.

It is incredible how well these goggles work and how far you will be able to see in complete darkness--sneak up on your friends in the dark during a game of laser tag, crawl through the attic with the lights off, or simply be really cool during a Halloween costume party. There are very few teenagers who would not think that this is one of the coolest gifts ever invented, and pleasing teenagers certainly makes these worth the EyeClops Night Vision Goggles every penny.

EyeClops has done an excellent job of making sure these goggles are built with great quality and care. They use high-grade components that stand up to some serious park play. While the head band is technically made to fit children and teenagers, they are completely adjustable and fit most adults within a few minutes. The creators and developers of these night vision goggles knew what they were doing, and they understood that what they created would appeal to both children and their parents. So for any adults out there who think they're too old for cool toys, give these night vision goggles a try, and you'll soon realize that you're not too old for anything, and that you may have to buy a second pair for the kids.

What Are the EyeClops Night Vision Goggles Really Like

They are actually really cool provided you do not attempt to use them to navigate/drive. To get a feel for how it feels, put a toilet paper roll up to your right eye. Close your left eye. Begin walking around. This is what it feels like…you have a very narrow field of vision in one eye. They do what they say and the construction seems pretty rugged and kid-friendly.

You'll need a Philips head screwdriver to put the batteries in and out. It is basically made of rubber and looks like it could survive a bit of rough handling. The view itself, as mentioned, is very narrow, but quite good. You can certainly turn off all the lights and make out the interior of your house in great detail.

You have to get used to "seeing from your forehead through one eye" but kids easily adapt to that. Even if some of us adults stumble around with them on :). You’ll have fun as your hand-eye coordination is “off” when reaching for an object because your "eye" isn't where it normally is. I did get used to the 'pirate's view' and the image that comes through the screen is amazing. You really can see in total darkness and flipping on the IR 'spotlight' really increases the range and brightness of objects that are closer.

These Eyeclops Night Vision Goggles are just as good and cost a lot less than military night vision goggles.

Eyeclops Night Vision Goggles - How Do They Work?

Night vision goggles are mostly used by the military and the police but also for security, hunting as well as wildlife observation purposes.

Most night vision goggles operate in 2 ways:

- image enhancement (using infrared-invisible to the human eye)

- thermal imaging.

The latest night vision goggles utilize both image enhancement and thermal imaging for better clarity and perception. Typically, the military level goggles let you see someone about 200 feet away in complete darkness.

However, you can still purchase night vision goggles for your own personal use.  The Eyeclops Night Vison Goggles are a great buy. Of course, they aren’t quite as good as military night vision goggles but then again they cost a LOT less. 

Night vision goggles are often characterized by the generation they are in. Currently there are 4 Generations. With generation 4th the most advanced and the most expensive. The heart of any night vision goggles is the light intensifier tube which allows targets to become visible at night. 

The latest Generation 4 night vision goggles uses both thermal and image enhancement technology for clear and bright images in the night. These higher level products are fitted with multiple light intensifier tubes and fast precision optics. The latest night vision goggles are very lightweight and portable and very easy to use as well.

      Eyeclops Night Vision V2 

      9 years ago

      I am not easily impressed, but this toy is amazing. Yes, the screen is tiny and can only see 50 feet or closer. But the picture and is amazing. In a completely blackened room I can see my husband's fingernails from 20 feet away. I can read the titles off books and such from the other side of the room.

      The construction feels rugged for the price point. This is an outstanding value for the price.

      I am sure this is not military grade night vision, but your 10 year old will love it.
