πŸ“± Make Night Vision with Google Cardboard (Dr. NOOB’s Lab)


hello again and welcome to dr. noobs laboratory today I’m going to be showing you how to make inexpensive
night-vision goggles using a Google cardboard now before we dive in on how
to do this let me go through the technology a little bit first we’re
going to be using infrared bulbs which are essentially the same thing used in
your TV remote control if you can see that light now to the naked eye I cannot
see this they are also used in the Wii and the Wii U sensor bar you normally
can’t see these lights but the camera can so we’re using this concept to
create night-vision goggles to do this we’re going to be using nearsighted VR
which is an application I created that shows what’s on your camera in
stereoscopic view so when you put it into the Google cardboard you can see in
stereoscopic now if I shut the lights off obviously I’m not going to be able
to see anything so what you can do is you can get a bunch of these little
bulbs and link them together to a battery it will actually admit light and
you can see it in the Google cardboard effectively making inexpensive night
vision now I took it a little step further and I didn’t have too much luck
but it does work I actually went ahead and picked up a night-vision security
bulb now this ran about 13 to 15 dollars it actually works pretty well you can
see a couple feet in front of you not the distance that I was hoping for not
the distance that it was advertised the only thing I don’t like about this is it
only turns on when the lights are out because it does have a sensor right
there in the middle to see if it’s daytime or nighttime on the other thing
I don’t like about it is it emits little red lights which if you’re trying to use
night vision you don’t want people to know you’re using
and that’s kind of a dead giveaway so you do kind of have to read description
a little closer ask a couple questions I wish I had asked a couple more questions
before purchasing this but it does work and basically all you have to do I mean
you can you can even do velcro so you can take it on and off and use your
Google Chrome at Google cardboard as you want
um but or glue it either way is fine now this one does have a very adapter but it
also can get plugged in as well just so everyone can see this is what the bulb
looks like in complete pitch-black I cannot see anything I see lights on the
camera that’s about it so I know where to point this thing I’m gonna put my
hand in front of it I don’t know how well you can see this but I’m thinking
there it is okay um so it does work I mean the cameras the camera or cameras
do pick it up and you can see you can see more than you can see in pitch black
let’s just say that and that’s it that’s how you make night vision using the
Google cardboard everybody I’ll leave the links below to both the infrared
bulbs if you want to purchase them also I will leave the links below for the
Google cardboard and the application you need to use to use the night vision have a great one

  • You get a lot better vision if you are brave enough to remove the IR filter in the phone. Also, some in app video would be cool!

  • You know ,if you could just remove the ir filter from yur smartphone camera , then you can really see the actual light coming from IR LED

  • bunch of bulshit.. why ppl are likeing this? This has nothing to do with makeing nvg… just playing around with nv camera.. lol

  • Hey, dingbat, halfassed creation is worthless if you don't take the IR Filter Lens out of the camera! Every digital camera has them including your smartphone. Otherwise all you're doing is no different than wearing a welders shield in broad daylight not seeing anything. Take off the shield (remove IR Filter) and suddenly you see everything the way it was meant.

    Once the main IR Filter is taken out then you can even replace the other lenses with a couple that are far better for night vision do to adjusting the wavelengths of the IR Lighting. Do you not realize that all IR light is always going to be your purple regardless what you do to your smartphone?

    Also, ya have to use specific types of IR Diodes as some are shitty even though they do work like in your case. It's better to create your own IR Diode cluster so the can order a box full and all being the same as well as the exact type you really need. Most states regulate preassembled IR assemblies causing there to be visible colors too for safety concerns and hunting laws.

    Try doing research before creating such a lame tutorial that teaches nothing!
