Pretty awesome infrared vision toy, for only $60.

My understanding is that this isn't true night vision - the toy has an 
IR LED on which it relies to provide sufficient illumination to make it 
work.  One consequence is that you can't buy two and use them to hunt 
each other in the dark - you will see the other person easily because 
they are essentially wearing a spot light :-(

But, I'm thinking if we split the $60 a couple of ways, this toy could 
still be a lot of fun.  And, we can take it apart when we're done. 
Who's with me?

Eric
