Today we have been looking at the Ultra Vision goggles from SpyNet. This would be a great Christmas present for any wanna-be spy. These night time goggles have lots of features and come with very detailed instructions. They require four ‘AA’ batteries which are not included.
After reading the instructions myself I think some technical things would need adult supervision but the basic use of the goggles could be picked up quite quickly by an 8+ year old. The goggles are fairly light and have a strap which is comfortable for a child to carry.
There are lots of night vision goggles available but the Spy Net Ultra Vision goggles have video and photo features which means your little spy can record their evidence! An SD card will be needed for this mode which is not included.
Five Vision Modes means they will keep your son or daughter happy for a while. These five modes are –
Night Vision – We found the night vision setting worked really well, the detail was clear and we were impressed with this mode. It also boasts being able to see up to 50′ in complete darkness, I am not sure we could see that far but it was a fair distance.
Enhanced Daytime Vision – We were not too sure about the need for this mode but found that we didn’t lose any quality through the goggles.
Ghost Recon – We liked this mode, very clear.
Thermal Tech Mode – This worked really well, as long as the target is slow or stationary this mode was very clear and detected the heat source well.
Record Mode – We have not made video or taken any pics yet but will update when we do with some examples. Adult supervision may be required with this mode to transfer the images and video onto a pc or laptop.
There is also two surveillance ranges, you can zoom in and see your target in the darkness or from many distances. There is also a short range mode for when you’re up close.
Our sons loved them and enjoyed pretending to be spy’s for hours!
The Spy Net Ultra Vision goggles cost around £40. If you would like more information take a look at the SpyNet website!
