The Tehachapi-based, independent “citizen science” group Science for the Masses created the sellable “night vision eye drop” after researching a natural molecule called Chlorin e6. Ce6 allows certain deep sea fish to see in the dark.

After applying the drops, scientists were able to clearly and instantly recognize people over 160 feet away in pitch blackness standing in the woods. Their eyes absorbed so much more light, sunglasses were required indoors.

Fortunately, the molecule can also easily by extracted from plants like algae, and it’s already used in some cancer treatments, so it’s proven human-safe.

Crazy Science: Would You Biohack Your Eyes?

Two men forming “citizen science” group Science for the Masses created an eyedrop made primarily of Chlorin e6, derived from a deep-sea bioluminescent fish. They claim the drops can help them clearly make out people over 160 feet away in pitch blackness standing in the woods. Would you try the drops?
