GoPro users that wish they could capture a little night vision might be interested in a new system called the Ecliptus that has been created by Ryan Gordon to provide military grade night vision using your GoPro Hero 4 action camera.
As you can see from the image above the system comprises of an outer case that encloses the GoPro camera and combines it with a military grade generation image intensifier.
Check out the video below to learn more about this new system that has taken to Kickstarter to raise the required $50,000 in funding to make the jump into production.
Gordon explains more about the new Ecliptus night vision system he has developed.
ASU’s new Ecliptus is a digital intensified night vision system coupling an ultra-high definition (4X HD) GoPro® Hero 4 camera to a high performance Generation III image intensifier.
This is the only night vision system that images extremely low light scenes (overcast starlight) in HD formats, captures these images via many hours of internal recording storage (≈ 9 hours HD video), and is able to real time share these images/videos through wireless communication (WiFi) to other digital networks or portable cloud computing devices. Ecliptus includes a near-IR illuminator, which is invisible to the human eye, which extends your ability to image and record in extreme low-light conditions.
This system can be applied to any commercial application requiring ultra high definition imaging, capture, and sharing of real time streaming video of night vision scenes.
