    Oh sure I can hear the shill now, be the first to own this "Military grade" night vision head that shows all the surrounding is vivid real color, set comes in cammo and assault tactical black complete with on board UHF and VHF television antenna built right in for when you are not spying on your neighbor's or doing a little night hunting for snipe you can watch your local television shows Just make 4 easy payments of $39.95. But wait if you order within the next 3 minutes we will knock off one whole payment. That makes the super color nigh vision goggles even more within the means of everyone and, we will ship a second night vision head set yours absolutely free just pay a nominal fee plus shipping and handling. Still not convinced as a bonus we are going to include a fifty million lumen tactical flash light that never needs batteries just give it a couple of shakes and light up the night bright as day just $5.95 plus shipping and handling.
    Never try to tell me it can't be done

    Two thoughts come to mind.

    Day for night (shoot film during the day and darken down, claim it's night);
    RGB color filters over three monochrome sensors. Digitally reconstruct.


    The second method has some issues, such as you probably don't have a broad spectrum light illuminating the landscape. ie: If the light is short on green, green stuff doesn't show up very well.

    The above came up in a court case where I was a witness (or witless, one of the two). I misidentified the color of a vehicle because it was under a mercury vapor lamp.

    Of course me identifying the vehicle didn't matter a lot since one of the guys in it leaned out and said "Hi Jerry! Remember me, we were in athlete's gym together last year." That dumb-**** found himself in jail explaining to his cellmates why he identified himself to a witness.

    I would love to see the night vision technology the military uses today. The ones we used in my unit in the 1970's, where we had one per Platoon, produced nothing but shades of green, but boy how glad we were to have them! It gave us the ability to "own the night" as our unit was known for. Back then we called them "the Cadillac in a box," because the price was around the cost of a new Caddy.

    Earlier models for the M-16 rifle were ridiculous, since they were heavier than the rifle and trying to balance the NVS and recoil were next to impossible. So glad to see out soldiers having them mounted on their helmets now and swung out of the way when not needed.
