I wanted a special toy for Matthew’s 7th birthday and when I read an EyeClops Night Vision review that talked about using the same infra-red technology as professional night vision goggles, I decided it was worth trying it out. I put the batteries (5 AA) and tried it out before packaging it back up and wrapping it in birthday paper. I wanted to make sure it worked and that I knew how it worked in case Matt needed some assistance with the assembly.
When I was trying the EyeClops Night Vision goggles on (and there was a little bit of adjusting I had to do to get them to fit me, and then undo it to fit Matt’s head), it was awesome. To go from complete darkness to actually having good clarity and a field of vision, thanks to the infra-red technology was absolutely amazing.
When Matt put the EyeClops Night Vision goggles on for the first time, I helped him get the straps adjusted. I turned the switch on and told him to give it a little time to adjust, and then it was, “Whoa, Dad, this is great!” He explored every nook and cranny inside the house with EyeClops Night Vision, and then we waited until dark and went into the backyard to see what we could discover.
EyeClops Night Vision has a knob on the right side to activate an LED light which helps you see farther. The LED light is pretty bright and, while it lets you see farther, it also enables others to spot you better, so you might want to use that function just intermittently. In the night vision mode, everything you see will be in a green monochrome. A button at the bottom of the right eye piece will allow you to switch the viewing display from green to black-and-white on the EyeClops Night Vision. I would recommend this toy for purchase.
