See like Predator with Infrared Contact Lenses

infrared-techYou’ll recall how the Predator movies all came down to hiding your heat signature, the same way as that one sequel to Tremors did, and all the episodes of Cops where they’ve got a helicopter to help look for the fugitive. Well now there is another tool coming down the pipe that will give people the ability to see infrared.

A team of engineers at the University of Michigan are using magic graphene to create contact lenses that can allow the wearer to see light outside of the visible spectrum. Right now they’re working on infrared, but I image they’ll have ultraviolet and microwave vision coming soon.

I suppose you could use the new ability to be some sort of lame super hero. I would just use it to look through the doors to see who’s hiding there with a sharpened toothbrush.
