Our chief complaints with the EyeClops Night Vision goggles were that they’re uncomfortable and allowed only one eye to be used. Thankfully the second gen is not only cheaper and better, but let’s you look creepy in comfortable binocular style.
According to Ars Technica, the newest toy from JAKKS Pacific has many improvements over the previous generation, mainly that you can finally use both eyes to see what’s going on instead of suffering through the odd monovision of the original model. Other improvements include the ability to fine tune vision by adjusting the interpupillary distance and a drop in price.
The EyeClops goggles still use infra-red sensing technology rather than true night vision, but with a low price of $US59.99, they’re difficult to resist. [Ars Technica]
