What is Snooperscope?
Snooperscope is a special WIRELESS invention that, by using your mobile device as a screen and the infrared light as a source, enables you to see in low light conditions and in TOTAL DARKNESS!
Plus, under visible light, it reveals hidden things that normally cannot be seen by the human eye.
A number of more practical applications have been developed with the Snooperscope because of its ability to peer through any opaque material that infrared rays can pass through.
Snooperscope's case color choice: Camouflage, Original Hunter Green, Black, White
Snooperscope is perfect for professional and personal applications, like:
- night vision
- to see in dark places
- to see through objects like liquids, inks and textiles
- to see dust and motes in environments
- for 101 experimental uses
- ...and for fun.
The retail launch price of the Snooperscope is currently ONLY $99!
Snooperscope can be can be attached to any smartphone or tablet with a special magnet
How does it work?
Snooperscope is primarily a Night Vision device and whether by biological or technological means, night vision is made possible by a combination of two approaches: sufficient spectral range, and sufficient intensity range. Humans have poor night vision compared to many animals, in part because the human eye lacks a tapetum lucidum.Spectrum of visible and invisible light.
Human vision is confined to a small portion of the electromagnetic spectrum called visible light.
Snooperscope enables the user to see objects in the dark by illuminating the object with infrared radiation and converting the reflected radiation into a visual image.
The resulting scene, which is apparently dark to a human observer, appears as a visible image to the Snooperscope, and this image and video are sent wirelessly to your smartphone or tablet.
Applications and experimental uses
Snooperscope has virtually unlimited applications in experimental projects.
Snooperscope Labs: some experiments made with the Snooperscope
Here are some applications you can use with your Snooperscope:
Snooperscope can maximize your smartphone and tablet in the dark, and improve visibility in low light conditions!
The Snooperscope infrared light is not visible to the human eye
Create eerie scenes inside a family household! With Snooperscope you can see the infrared tracking dots, a feature of the Kinect, like seen in the movie Paranormal Activity 4. Test it out to see how it really works and how it would look on Snooperscope. Turn off all the lights, turn on the Kinect, aim Snooperscope away from the Kinect and you will see there's this stuff going on in the house that you can't see.
Since the infrared reflection of pigments in paints and inks is different from that of white light, it is possible to detect forged paintings and checks by the way the color appears.
Snooperscope is able to create revealing images using reflected infrared light, internal defects that are not evident in visible light, the use of different materials, and sometimes the artist's pencil.
Some objects appear opaque in daylight, but with Snooperscope they are transparent!
CRIME AND FORGERIES
Crime detection laboratories are now using similar equipment for reading through certain types of material. You can attach Snooperscope to a microscope and greatly broaden your observation because many substances react very differently to infrared light than they do to visible light. Snooperscope's infrareds can penetrate deeper into some materials (e.g. animal tissues) and permit examination below the surface.
NOCTURNAL AND WILD ANIMALS
Use Snooperscope to study the behaviour of small nocturnal animals in total darkness.Naturalists and campers will find the Snooperscope an ideal instrument with which to study the habits of nocturnal wildlife. Unlike an ordinary flashlight, the invisible infrared beam of the Snooperscope will not frighten away the animals under observation. Another useful application is in photography of wild animals.
Many colored textiles will appear in different colors; for example, some black or red textiles will appear white when viewed with the Snooperscope, while others appear very dark. The difference is due to the use of different types of dyes in coloring the materials. Uneven, poor-quality dyeing of fabrics can often be spotted.
With two sets of Snooperscope you can blink invisible Morse code signals over a distance of a mile or more. Momentarily cover each Snooperscope with your hand and then blink the invisible signals, which your distant partner can detect.
Snooperscope has standard threads for installation on tripods, car mounts and universal stands
The Snooperscope App
The Snooperscope App is available for iOS and Android.
The App is really easy to setup and use:
- download it free from the App Store or Google Play
- pair Snooperscope with a direct Wi-Fi connection to your smartphone or tablet (no router needed)
- open the App and you are done!
Simply click the snapshot icon on the App to take still pictures or click the record icon to record an actual video and save it.
The snapshots will come up so it's easy to save them as a JPEG in your smartphone.
The recorded video will automatically save as an MPEG.
Snooperscope: how the prototype works
Snooperscope technical specifications
Snooperscope runs through a Wi-Fi peer-to-peer connection, meaning it's protected with a secure video feed.
Snooperscope uses H.264 video compression. This is a standard for video compression that allows for a better frame rate and smoother, enhanced, top quality video from the camera sensor.
Snooperscope has its own on-board power battery that provides up to 4 hours of active use. That means you don’t have to limit where you go or what you do because of a cord tethering you to one place – and it also won’t drain the battery in your mobile device.

The Snooperscope Team
- Marco Montresor - CEO and Founder, Software engineer - App development
- Eros Parise - Hardware engineer - Hardware testing and debugging
We have designed, redesigned and reimagined Snooperscope many times during the past months, pouring countless hours into thinking about the user experience, the technical aspects of the project and how to deliver the world's smallest, lightest andsmartest night vision device using a smartphone at an affordable price point.
You can help bring Snooperscope to the world by being the very first to own it and experiment with it!
We've spent many months designing and developing Snooperscope and its App.
We've built our prototypes and we need your help to take Snooperscope to the next level and get it into production.
We want to put the first series of Snooperscope into your hands so that you can use it and experiment with it with your friends.
We want to build a stronger relationship with our early adopters, and use feedback to make Snooperscope as amazing as possible.
With the valuable feedback we receive from supporters like yourselves, projects like Snooperscope will be given the opportunity to evolve and grow in a way we simply couldn't achieve by ourselves.
Now we’re excited to build a product that can radically change the way people see what their eyes can't.
in the movement to take Snooperscope to the next level!
