the narrator...is that a real person talking?!
I think the flashlight was just to see. I don`t think it was the one he constructed, as he filtered that one.
Then use it and find out that your pre-millenium camera doesnt detect much at all."
copying what i said previously then saying it doesnt work? BS! it does work, ive done it with my web cam. and it shows it happening on this youtube video as well ( not my video btw )
yes, as i said in my first post, the whole idea is pointlessbut it will work
i dont even know what your are saying anymore, what part of this wont work?
I think they would, because how are you meant to line up a photograph in the dark if you can`t at least see a bit in the first place?
Plus, any lightbulb emits infra-red radiation. Want proof? Try touching a lightbulb after it`s been on for even a minute. The reason you burn your hand is the infra-red radiation, because that`s what heat is.
Then use it and find out that your pre-millenium camera doesnt detect much at all.
Real night-vision equipment is VERY sensitive and can be ruined my merrly removing the lens cap in daylight.
I know this because my dad owns an expensive night vision aid. Do you think they`d sell cameras with this useless feature? I think not.
might add that this probably isn`t using true IR but a wavelength of around 1um, only just longer than the average person can see
But that still isn`t a reason to dismiss all the instructional videos out of hand, as I have already pointed out.
In this video the guy uses what looks like normal bulb flashlight, this *will* emit IR radiation.
He uses several sheets of tinted cellophane to filter out all the noticeable visible light.The cellophane will still allow the IR radiation to shine through.
The camera he is using has a night-time mode, that detects IR to get a clearer picture.
Shining the torch will increase the amount of light the camera can detect, just as shining an unfiltered torch would increase the amount of light your eye would detect.
Many cameras use a similar night mode and many cameras come with built in IR emitters. This vid is only really showing how to make an IR em
My bad. I saw a similar clip on metacafe, by KipKay, who just stuck cellophane into goggles, to block out the visible wavelengths of light. I just assumed this was the same clip. Shouldn`t have jumped to conclusions.
I believe this is a new concept, which somebody has spent time refining (whethter it does or does not work) thus rendering it an invention.
Secondly, I wasn`t commenting on grammar, I was refering to your articulation (or lack thereof).
Dust_monkey, I don`t see the point insulting my opted account name, especially when yours has apparently no relevance to anything at all. If you really want to know, I looked at the first thing in my room (being one of my pairs of Converse Allstars) and chose that. If there`s anyting else you want to know about me, please feel free to ask.
Now to address the point about the MetaCafe site; people are encouraged to make videos with a very high appeal, meaning they often consist of outrageous claims. The bigger the claim, the more views the video gets, the more money the owner receives.
Also, I don`t care about your disability and the way you *use it*.
"its from metacafe its fake (ps kill yourself)""no, it could work, here`s why: ...""you misspelt something there its still fake"*utter deterioration of sensible replies*
i have sugested a much cheeper way to do this and you havent commeneted on that have you?
i hate these people who think there so superior that everyone else, its basicly racism / discimination. im acturly dyslexic so my spelling isnt as good as the average person.
and your still a wank stain converse ( and wtf is up with naming your self after a shoe? you realy that perfectic with limimted imagination )
this isnt an invention anyways
the way metacafe makes money has no bearing on the validity of this vids claimsneither does my (evidently very offensive lack of grammar)
you have managed to make a statement and back it up with two of the most fallacious arguments on my interwebs fofofofo
if you care to explain why this "invention" as you call it doesnt work then perhaps i might turn up the grammar slightly
You too, dust_monkey...this isn`t a pre-school group.
This `invention` doesn`t work. 99% of these `inventions` don`t work. They rely on fools like you to watch the video multiple times so they earn more money.
Yes, metacafe has a system which pays the makers of movies for getting traffic to their site, and you`re all suckers for it. Stop feeding these lazy moviemakers for telling us lies, its just a way of them to sit at home earning money from other peoples` stupidity.
my reasoning was that he uses a few more sheets of red, to block out all shorter than it, then a couple of sheets of blue to block out some of the longer wavelengths, resulting in all the visible red being blocked but still letting enough IR through for it to work
that`s if i decide to take the advice you gave me in your first comment, converse.
these comments calling me retarded for believing this would were were just too much for me not to comment on, they irony was just too great
blue cellophane will only alow blue light inred will only alow red thru, add them together no light can get thru apart from the light not in the visable spectru eg inferred
any way there is a better and cheeper way to do this imo, just buy a infered LED or use your tv remote :)
also converse uk you are a wankstain
coloured cellophane is used to stop some frequencies of light getting thru, and his setup is designed to stop all visible light getting thru
presumably the red cellophane stops light of a shorter wavelength than red and the blue cellophane stops light of a longer wavelength of blue (which is why he uses less blue)
oohhh the possibilities :P
If enough red(+blue) cellophane can block all visible light while still letting infra red thru then it would work (im not an expert on cellophane, but this makes perfect sense)
Cy- true: infra-red cant be seen by the human eye, but thats why a camera that can see infra red must be used.
Jesus_Wey- yes, the sony night vision camera uses infra red to see in the dark with.. thats why shining an infra-red light makes it see more clearly
The whole point if this is that you can see people without them seeing you. But that wont work because the light used in the screen will shine on your face anyway.
A whole lot of you people missed the point in this video pointed out flaws that didnt exist and missed the one that did.
Quick to claim it retarded also.. ironic really
lol. that`s what i was thinking.
for what? i don`t know, but i want them.
A digital camera from the 90`s. Who has one of them? Very few people.
He`s getting money from every person who believes this crap. He knows nobody will actually try it out, so he knows it doesn`t have to work.
Everybody who believes this, please kill yourself now.
I`m calling the grammar police!
the narrator talks just like her.
