Just when you thought that a binocular could not get more advanced.
 
This is not only one of the world's best binoculars and finest laser rangefinders all in one but now it will allow you to communicate over 1.5 miles via light waves.
 
Check it out.
 
 

No pie in the sky: The LEICA GEOVID LUX 8x56 combines precision optics with electronic communications. A electronics unit in the housing and a sophisticated system of prisms inside enable a totally new form of audiovisual communication. Besides viewing distant objects, the user of these binoculars can also talk to other binocular users via a headset.

Using light waves, the LightSpeed technology transmits voices in the field of view of the binoculars up to a distance of 1 1/2miles( 2.5 km) crystal-clear, without any interference, day and night. Even data such as text or images can be fed in via the USB port and transmitted at a rate of up to 1 Mbps. This development has evolved from a cooperation arrangement with the well-known electronics development company Torrey Pines Logic from California/USA.

This form of bug-proof communication offers special police and military units a wealth of tactical advantages. The extremely compact yet powerful LEICA GEOVID LUX 8x56 also has further application potential in stalking, industry and rescue services.
