Bright Side gathered some items from the future that were unimaginable yesterday.

Pocket-sized handheld thermal vision monocular

This FLIR Scout TK pocket-sized thermal monocular is used to explore the outdoors at night and in low-light conditions. Scout TK reveals your surroundings and helps you see objects, people, and animals over 100 yards (90 m) away.
