Night vision technology now comes with Scandinavian style.  

Smartphones that shoot sharp, luminous photos are common, but now Danish company Lumigon has announced its T3 smartphone— and it has a night-vision camera that takes both photos and videos.

“The T3 is the first smartphone in the world to have a 2K HD Night Vision camera that can capture photos and videos even in total darkness,” the company boasted in a statement.

The sleek new phone, which runs the Android operating system, is made of stainless steel and Corning Gorilla Glass. It's also available in 24-karat gold.
