Night Vision


nationalgeographic igen nv2020 night scope3 Night Vision

Wow, that was brief news. I’m sorry to announce that "Darth Vader Rises" post, which was posted here on NerdGrind.com has been erased. Was it rouge hackers working for the Jedi’s? Or did Lucas finally catch on that I love Star Wars.

In any case for those lucky and quick enough to catch that geeky news – Cheers. For the others who desperately want Darth Vader News, get a pair of these National Geographic’s iGEN NV20/20 Night Scope and look into the dark. Then, maybe….just maybe you’ll spot the ever elusive blog post.

But seriously folks this night vision thingamajig is pretty sweet, costs about $520 and debuts in April 2008.
