Military night-vision system available for Hummers


We all know that visibility declines at night, making driving a lot more dangerous. But, until now, the most you could typically do about it was to turn up your lights and go slowly. Now, however, a heat-sensing imaging system originally developed for the military is available to consumers. Nightdriver uses a bumper-mounted camera and small screen at the edge of the windshield to provide a realtime sensor image of the road ahead. Fittingly, it's currently only available as an option on another military-developed item: the Hummer. While we wouldn't mind checking this out with our car, we're still glad that the driver careening toward us in that massive Hummer may actually be able to use this to avoid squashing us like a bug.
