I think something that would be a good invention would be to take a Gen III and a Flir and combine them. If you could overlay the image of the flir onto the image of the Gen III then you could see the area and have the thermal outline tracing the image...

This way you could get detail and the heat of the creature. Other than for BF'ing I don't know if it would be practical for any other animal though.

You would have a control to increase the IR image or the Flir image or set it to merge or dissolve the two images together. Plus you could have a button to switch between the two. So if you are tracking an animal on the flir, you could turn up the IR and look for detail. Kinda like the dissolve function when editing video, dissolve from one image to another or do a overlay.

You may also be able to do a split screen, one side is thermal and the other is IR. Using 3D technology these images could be merged into a 3D display with the flir image acting as the background and the Gen3 as the foreground. Or reverse it. Like the old 3D glasses use one color with another to simulate 3D.

Of course this would be one expensive piece of equipment but it might be just what BF'ers need. It sure would help tracking a moving animal through thick brush.

To build it you'd have to have good optics and a prism to direct both images into a single stream, then controls to overlay the two images. Perhaps something that would shoot both images to a CCD and you would watch it threw a viewfinder, like on a camcorder. A computer chip would allow you to mix the two images.
Since both images would be identical, coming through the same optics, the mix would be a perfect overlay.

If you could design the Flir where it generates an outline instead of a full heat scan, kinda like a aura around the target, then it would surround the Gen3 image giving you a good idea of it's shape and size, as well as the details inside the Gen3 can see.

Now that would be nice to have in the field!

on the ARMY, the military has them but they don't use them to record.

Was a GENIUS!
Really, that is what is needed to hunt Monsters!
Think about it, a helmet with a visor unit capable of multiple vision modes starting with thermal integrated into it with a wire that goes down to switch on a forearm mounted control panel and a shoulder mounted gun or cannon.
PURE GENIUS!

If it is mounted on your left shoulder, you have to be careful when looking to the right, otherwise you would shoot yourself in the back of the head by mistake,,LOL.
Same thing in reverse as well.
