I’m really at a loss for words with this one… It would absolutely make my day if I ever saw someone using any of those setups in real life.
Isn’t the whole point of night vision in special ops to also remain hidden in the darkness while you’re scoping things out? How’s that going to work with a big display screen lighting everything up? Even on the lowest brightness, those screens are still plenty bright when in the dark. Is the point of using a screen rather then the regular eye piece so that 5 guys can be huddled around it at once? If not, what is the point? There is a lot of extra bulk, especially on the ipad example in the pic… but i’m thinking that particular setup might be for a tri-pod or vehicle application.
The eye-pieces on those things must be pretty strong if they can take mounting like that and resist a decent amount of shock.
I thought there was a chance this might just be a troll, mainly because the Special Operations Apps website looks suspect and doesn’t have any real info on it. Some more digging though, which lead me to US Night Vision where they sell the iPhone mount and iPad mount for $269 and $499 respectively. *facepalm*
It will be nice if/when night vision cameras are mirrorless someday. This is one piece of technology that looks like it’s stuck back in the 90s.
Pretty simple game, you play against a cowboy in a duel. Pretty cool that people are getting rich off these 99cent iDevice games.
I really don’t feel like I’m missing by only having a Motorola Xoom, which by the way still holds the spot of being the #1 best electronic device I’ve ever owned. The hardware is incredible, and the software is made by google… so yea it’s amazing too.
I’ll probably never buy an Apple product again. Not because of the quality (it’s obviously top notch), but because of the restrictions (both software and hardware) on all of their devices. Yea you can get relatively cheap 3rd party cables and software, and even jailbreak the phones… but why should I have to pay or do some work to make the device function as it rightfully should?
The technology was originally invented by NASA to be used by autonomous vehicles on space missions. Our implementation uses the camera of the mobile device to build 3D maps of the surroundings in real-time and determine the device’s location and orientation within these maps.
Sounds and looks really interesting! I’d like to see it used for a more graphic intense realistic looking FPS game.
You can buy it at the Apple App Store if you have an ipad2 – HERE
In the near future the world has collapsed. You have been hired as a mercenary to fight against the enemy. Be paid for everything you kill and destroy and buy new weapons or upgrade the current ones. 12 weapons (incl. AK-47, M4, SCAR, RPG) with upgradable Scopes, Stocks, Cartridges, Barrels and Frontmouths gives you over 100 combinations! Fight through 80 waves and 4 extra Hell waves in 4 locations.
Looks pretty cool. I might give it a try sometime.
