    Night Vision Camera for Nintendo Switch allows you to use the Right/Red joycon's IR Sensor to actually see things in the dark.
    The night vision allows you to see for about .5 meters away from you. its fully black and white/ Green and black so its not very clear.
    Night Vision is out now on the eshop for $10 and allows you to capture photos in black and white with your Joycons.
    This is surprisingly not homebrew.

    So Nintendo is still using the same 128x96 IR camera they used on the Wii remote. I guess if it's enough to track position accurately there's no point in buying something more expensive, though I wonder if it's actually the same part number, I haven't really seen anything about it.

    I wonder if it can see through clothing like that IR filter on that mobile phone recently :creep:

    Oh well, one way to find out... :creep:

    Reminds me of the late 90's Sony recall lol

    In 1998, the tech giant had its biggest product recall in history when it had to recall 700,000 video cameras after customers discovered the product inadvertently boasted ‘X-ray’ capabilities.

    The video cameras were equipped with night vision, infra-red technology that allowed users to take pictures in dark.

    However when the infra-red lens was used in daylight it was able to see through certain clothes, revealing tattoos, underwear and body parts underneath.

    it's probably not the same camera as it even supports up to 320x240 (https://github.com/switchbrew/libnx/blob/master/nx/include/switch/services/irs.h#L54).

    You can toy around with the camera on using Joy-Con Toolkit.



    Tho it is pretty SLOW refreshing the image and it tends to disconnect often.

    Wonder how long Nintendo will let this last on the eShop before pulling it due to "unintended use"

    probably if they realize it's unofficial code/homebrew (if it is that is)
