Seems like some phenomenal commercial applications as well for security, nature photography, etc. In addition to the wearable applications I'd be really interested to see it incorporated into unattended ground sensors and other ground surveillance. In MI we always bias towards the airborne sensors but the things you can do from the ground - especially on a cost comparison basis - are pretty substantial.
 
How much does it weigh? Does it mount to a helmet? How many extra batteries do I have to carry? Are they standard batteries, or something special? How durable is it against dust, cold, heat, bouncing around in a ruck/blowout pouch? Will it still pick up my IR sparkle?

Definitely a game changer, but I hope the answers to those questions are favorable ones. Wouldn't be the first piece of game changing kit that ended up not being all that great in the field.
