Scientists claims to have created nanoparticle that lets mice see in infrared

A group of scientists claim to have created an injectable nanoparticle that provides superhuman vision. Researchers from the University of Science and Technology of China and the University of Massachusetts Medical School developed an ’ocular nanoparticle’ that can detect near-infrared light (NIR). They injected it into the eyes of mice giving it a ’super vision’, enabling it to see in infrared.

Tangentially related, but... Some years ago, Japan came up with some stringent regulation for phone cameras. All because creeps found out that digital cameras are naturally sensitive to the upper IR spectrum, and have IR filters to block it, to not let the sensors react to colors that humans don't see. Well, if you remove the filter, you get to see some IR imaging... and as it turns out, many items of clothing are semi-transparent to IR. I wonder if perverts will line up to get a dose of this "enhancement." Also, should it be legal?
