Want a super night vision? Now you got it. A good news for adventurers and campers. A team of biohackers from US, California has developed a way that would enable people to amass night vision up to 50 meters in total darkness. No it is not some high tech binocular but a plain eye drop. It gives you night vision for almost 7 hours.
There was a patent filed in 2012 proposing the same.The patent claims of a mixture which, when applied to the eye, will get absorbed to the retina and increase vision in dim light. The mixture is a simple combination of Ce6 and insulin in saline. The report suggested that dimethlysulfoxide (DMSO) can be used instead of insulin.
Now this group of biohackers, taking notes from the previous held researches and adding some of their own have created this eye drop that claims to develop temporary super night vision on its test subject Gabriel Licina.
The ingredients and process of formulation of the eye drop as stated by the researchers’ team are 200mg of Ce6 mixed with 400 units (4ml) of insulin (70/30 Lantus). Add 5.38ml of sterile saline solution (0.9% sodium chloride). The mixture was sonicated briefly (30 seconds) to allow for proper dispersal of the powder into saturated solution and then 625μl of DMSO (Amresco) was added. The solution was sealed with parafilm and sonicated for 150 seconds. The resulting liquid was thin and black in color. Solution was kept in glass aliquot wrapped in foil at 20°C.
As Gabriel was later tested, he was able to identify various letters, symbols and objects ranging from 10 meter distance in complete darkness and further extending to 50 meters. This recent development if proven without any side effects would become one of the best assets for the Armed Forces and soldiers patrolling at night.
Also you will get these demonic eyes as a result of the drops.. Now you get one more way to scare your friends!!
