Adapting technology found in flat screen television sets, scientists have created a thin film that converts infrared light into visible light. The technology could give cell phones, eyeglasses and car windshields cheap, lightweight night vision.

"This device can convert any infrared image into a visible image and would weigh no more than a pair of eyeglasses," said Franky So, a scientist at the University of Florida who describes his new night vision technology in a recent article in the journal Advanced Materials that was funded in part by advanced technology powerhouse DARPA.
Article also says could be repurposed - looking for heat loss in homes, medical, etc.

Uses IR, so need IR source.

Yeah I'm excited about this. 18 months, so we'll have to wait, but I know what I'm getting next Christmas :)
I like that this tech is lightweight too.
$$ for nightvision is brutal, I just couldn't justify it, unless I bought cheapo crap.
