This is awesome technology – especially being able to do it at room temperature.

Not only could we see things in the dark, but it would allow doctors to see blood flow much easier.

Just think about a pair of glasses which could be switched on or off to allow infrared vision? Or even contacts?

We shall see where this goes.
