Boy howdy, these LightSpeed Binoculars by Torrey Pines Logic seem to be able to do anything. They act as binoculars, but also as short-range communication devices for sharing information covertly. Using infrared LEDs, two people looking at one another through a pair of LightSpeeds would also be able to talk and swap video data, thanks to embedded USB and Ethernet adapters and receivers. It’s no wonder that Torrey Pines Logic enjoys a list of military clients including US and foreign special forces teams as the transmitted information is untappable and tamper-proof.
My favorite part? The company doesn’t see its crazy talkie-binoculars as only being useful to those in the military. Leo Volfson, president of Torrey Pines Logic, hope the binoculars will be a boon at airports where ground-based communication can be difficult, or anywhere where a lack of communication systems reliant on cables are cumbersome.
