On today’s podcast, host Sean Heath chats with Dan Cui from SiOnyx. We discuss the advancements in the concept of wearables, the benefits of being able to have superhuman vision at night, and the future of cellphones.
"What do you get when you take Go-Pro portability and marry it with a military-grade night-vision goggle? The SiOnyx Aurora, that’s what. And it’s a game changer. Night vision isn’t a new concept, but the method that SiOnyx uses certainly is. With proprietary technology, this company has charted new waters by making its products available to the public for the first time..."
At the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show I got to take a demo cruise with SiOnyx to see their Aurora night vision camera in action. What I saw during our cruise of the New River and Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway was impressive, but also illustrated some limitations.
The SiOnyx Aurora night-vision camera has transformed the way hunters, fishermen, hikers, and adventurers of all kinds capture and share their lives. And now, law enforcement agencies are discovering it’s an affordable addition to their gear that delivers critical capabilities they’ve never had before.

DENVER–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Outdoor Retail Expo, Booth #29127-SL – SiOnyx™ (Beverly, MA), a leader in infrared imaging technology – today announced the official launch for the SiOnyx Aurora™, the only HD action video camera with true day and night color imaging. SiOnyx Aurora is just under 8 ounces and sized to fit comfortably in one hand for easy operation.
Available in August direct from SiOnyx at sionyx.com at a retail price of $799, Aurora is based on the SiOnyx Ultra Low Light technology that is protected by more than 40 patents and until now was only available in the highest-end night vision optics costing tens of thousands of dollars. This identical technology has now been cost-reduced for use in Aurora and other upcoming devices from SiOnyx and its partners.
Action cameras are designed to capture action anywhere — but what if that action is happening in the dark? What if action cameras were equipped with night vision? That is the idea behind the Sionyx Aurora, a camera that can shoot day or night thanks to an ultra-low-light sensor and night vision. After originally launching with a Kickstarter earlier this year, the company says the camera will be available in August, without the crowd-funded risk, from the company’s website.
It seems that every ten years or so, the international community is spellbound by a tragic story of people trapped deep beneath the earth’s surface. Just weeks ago, the rescue of a Thai soccer team from a complex cave system dominated headlines. 2010 saw over 30 Chilean miners trapped for more than two months. Both stories served as serious reminders of the dangers miners and other subterranean workers face every day. For that industry, equipment is everything in a hostile, alien environment. The recent release of SiOnyx’s Aurora offers a new, powerful tool for those workers in the form of the world’s first day/night camera with true night vision.
SiOnyx, a company that produces night vision technology, has announced the Aurora, an action camera that promises to shoot colour footage in the dark. Priced at $799, the SiOnyx Aurora claims to be the only HD action video camera with true day and night colour imaging. The Aurora employs SiOnyx’s Ultra Low Light technology, and the company says it can record video and stills in near total darkness.
SiOnyx Aurora is a new action camera that claims to be the world’s first day/night camera for consumers. It’s ultra-light sensitive, allowing you to shoot full-color images in low-light conditions.
The Aurora is “the only HD action video camera with true day and night color imaging,” SiOnyx says, noting that it has received over 40 patents related to the camera. SiOnyx was founded back in 2006 by Professor Eric Mazur and Dr. James Carey of Harvard University.
