Night vision contacts may have aided SEALs in Bin Laden kill


Let’s hear it for wearable tech! The rumor mill has been gristling lately. That gristle has been saying that the Navy SEALs that took down 9-11-perpetrating, porn-loving Osama Bin Laden were using night vision contacts during the mission.

According to Kit Up‘s editor Christian Lowe (the smartest guy in the room regarding  military tech), he heard a rumor that “contact lenses that literally give the wearer night vision for a limited time without having to wear the bulky, heavy NVGs (Night Vision Goggles).”

Of course, this is just a rumor. Still, it’s nice to think that one day all manner of wearable tech will be put to good use. Now where did I put my Nike+?
