Thread: Nightvision In Visor

  1. If you have problem incorperating NVGs in the helmet why don't you use try the goggles that Savvytank made for the ODST gear to use as exterior NVG goggles for the helmets. It's just an idea Iv'e been thinking about using the ODST goggles when I get them to make them a bit more funchional for sniping with a cammera zoomin/out capabilities, since I got the idea from Savvytank ever since he made the goggles for Halo 3 ODST release but NV capabilities it might work you'll never know good luck.

  2. I have put a lot of thought into this idea.



    First off, the red/blue gel filters WILL work but not well. The human eye can't see infrared light however there is a small spectrum of "near-infrared" light that we can see. It's that small amount of light that can give you limited vision.



    Second, though one could place a screen in front of your eyes it is very unlikely that you would be able to look at it for long periods of time without strain. To fix this, a lens would be needed. If you have the money this would be your best bet.



    Third, poor depth perception other visual impairments impairments will always be a problem. Even the military's true night visoin googles have them. Whether it's peripheral vision, depth, or clarity. Something will always be lost.



    As for how to fit this all in the helmet, there are several ways. As with most permutations, IR lights can be on either side, and Myvu glasses can be within the helmet connected to a pinhole camera either hidden, or in the place of one of the lights. My favorite however involves the new Halo Reach helmet by Rundown (found here). The thing (for lack of better words) on top of the helmet seems to be a device that comes down onto the visor. I think this would be a great place to store the IR LEDS and the camera. It could also hold an LCD if enough distance is provided to focus on it.



    Anyway, hope this helped and sorry for the long post.

    Wiring is strait forward. The cam and screen has RCA plugs, connect the Yellow, Video to Video. White is Audio. On mine Black was Power. As to flipping the screen, I recommend taking the screen to a trained technician or I don't know if they are still available, but there was a video inverter available for the RV backup cam system.

    These humanoids are not well constructed. They damage easily.

    I'm new to the forum but this topic instantly caught my eye.



    A quick Google search pulled up this:

    http://www.lumus-optical.com/index.p...id=9&Itemid=15

    (apparently also available as monocular)



    As far as I can tell, if this could be replicated in a cheap way, then the eye strain and depth perception would be solved. All that is needed is the Night Vision input and a power supply.



    EDIT:



    What about hacking up a used Gameboy Micro for the screen and putting it all in the ODST goggles?

    I think I may have a solution when it comes to the lack of space inside the helmet. How about if the "peak" of the MC helmet above the visor had a hinged under surface? Then all that would be needed it to push on it, let it swing down, then just push it back up when done, and store all the electronics on the inside.

    Take an ODST visor that is clear, and have an opaque blue visor slide down that has an LCD on the inside, unless that brings back the "too close to view for long periods of time" talk. Or maybe if an LCD was put on both the left and ride side of the visor in peripheral vision, like side mirrors that do whatever. By the way, my science experiment's (the one I mentioned in an earlier post) results were that the goggles don't work for nightvision, but cheap digital cameras do work.

    i actually had the same idea and i started taking apart the eyeclop night vision toy (that i've already got) to see what it looks like inside it would be pretty simple to incoporate it into the helmet. also you could try to put it in the halo 3 sniper rifle scope so you could get the same effect like in the game

    You just necroed a two and a half year old thread. Please read the forum rules more thoroughly in the future to avoid that.
