Anybody actually see and or use one of these? It allows you to Wifi the video out from various digital or NV scopes to one's smart phone or tablet.

That looks mainly like a wifi module, depending on the proper output connections on your NV or digital scope. Tech is straightforward enough, if made properly it should work.

I'm actually surprised the market has not developed more digital scopes. CCD at focal point and display replaces eyepiece. Would remove issues of parallax and eye relief, add a couple accelerometer you get your level, features abound.

There are a couple of new digital NV scopes on the market, the Drone Pro from Armasight, Photon from Sightmark and Pulsar have updated their N750 & DFA750 range.

The Photon grafts the CCD camera to the front of a traditional scope, making a sub $800 NV scope possible. It's built to a price point, the OEM is actually Pulsar, who make the more expensive N750/N770 range of digital scopes.

The Drone Pro uses a 'better' camera and near eye display than the Pulsar 750, but must be used with an external IR illuminator.

The Pulsar has some ability to be used without IR and does have a semi adequate on board IR.

In the UK there is an active DIY digital night vision forum, www.nightvisionforumuk.com THR members Bennybone, DFWRoadkill & I are members there.

Double Naught Spy: Thanks for the link. I've posted it on the UK forum. If its any good they will be either using it in a home build or reverse engineering it shortly.

Well, a guy from G2 commented on a hog hunting post I made on the Pulsar page on FB about me needing one of the units for my Pulsar N550, but when I emailed him for specific information, he did not reply. It appears that his post on the Pulsar page was a trolling, attempted thunder stealing, drive-by with no foundation. Nobody has the product and G2 apparently does not sell them...or doesn't answer their mail to do business.

Ah well. Vaporware is common in the shooting sports. I've noticed that companies that use hard faced 'models' to promote their wares don't seem to have a long shelf life.
At least they had trigger discipline, but their stance was poor.
