Move over trichromacy, infrared is the hot new way to see

quote [ Mice with vision enhanced by nanotechnology were able to see infrared light as well as visible light, reports a new study. A single injection of nanoparticles in the mice's eyes bestowed infrared vision for up to 10 weeks with minimal side effects, allowing them to see infrared light even during the day and with enough specificity to distinguish between different shapes. The researchers also think more work can be done to fine tune the emission spectrum of the nanoparticles to suit human eyes. "This is an exciting subject because the technology we made possible here could eventually enable human beings to see beyond our natural capabilities." ]
