They ran some tests to see if the mice could distinguish green from infrared, distinguish shapes, etc--and they pretty much could. The video goes on to suggest great things from enhancing human vision--soldiers wouldn't need night vision goggles--but
- The human eye has some chromatic aberration already; the focus for infrared would be farther farther off than the red. But the infrared would appear green. Our focus centers on the green. I leave to your imagination how fuzzy things will get with 2 different focus lengths for green light.
- Try to imagine persuading soldiers to get shots in their eyes. Just try. Don't forget that they carry powerful weapons.
- Night vision is also about intensifying small amounts of light, not just infrared.
I don't believe I'll volunteer for human trials, if any.
