The Opticals of Riddick
A group of biohackers in Tehachapi, California have figured out a way to give themselves night vision by squirting a kind of chlorophyll analog called Chlorin e6 directly onto their eyeballs. Anthony is thrilled by this development and cannot wait to try it himself, while Jeff is disturbed by the solid black color the eyes take on, and the complete lack of medical oversight. Would you go full Riddick?
