* [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pit_viper Pit vipers]] have a biological version of this. Their name comes from small pits in their heads that let them sense infrared. While they can't see through objects, this sense allows them to hunt prey and avoid predators at night. It's more of a gimmick, though.
* Some Sony cameras feature "Nightshot" modes, that allow to [[http://irbuzz.blogspot.com/2007/05/ir-for-beginners-sony-nightshot-cameras.html take images]] on absolute darkness using infrared wavelengths.

** In another episode a regular digital camera is used to spot the infrared laser being bounced off one of the apartment's windows in order to eavedrop on Michael (in such a system the laser can measure vibrations in the glass and output it as sound from inside the room. This is TruthInTelevision to an extent; digital cameras ''can'' see otherwise invisible infrared; point your remote at your camera and push a button while looking at the screen)

* In the ''BatmanTheAnimatedSeries'' episode "Blind as a Bat," this formed one of Wayne Enterprises' new developments. When Bruce Wayne was temporarily blinded in an explosion, he refined this technology into a pair of goggles. [[DiabolusExMachina The wire which connected the goggles to a battery pack broke as he was getting out of the Batwing]]. Back to square one, as they say...

** Darkvision it itself unrealistic, as it apparently shows shapes just fine but lacks color information... which actually acts more like ''sonar'' than anything else! This does, however, provide an interesting explanation for Dwarves' predilection for carved runes -- writing on paper is a color difference that is not visible to darkvision, while chiseled runes (which have a depth difference) ''are''.

* Some materials are transparent to infrared, but opaque to the visible spectrum, so this trope is in play some of the time.

* Some materials are transparent to infrared, but opaque to the visible spectrum, so this trope is in play some of the time. Potassium bromide is one of those things. Many chemists and students have taken infrared spectra of reaction products by grinding up those products in a mortar with some potassium bromide, pressing that mixture into a wafer, and projecting infrared light through that wafer.

*** Said Predator is shown to use multiple vision modes, it discovers that it is inside a trap when it changes to ultra-violet and sees both the invisible light beams and the glowing dust on its body.

** ''Metroid'' is apparently in TheFuture [[MST3KMantra after all]]. But the cheap wiring fits with evidence the Scan Visor gives in ''Metroid Prime 3'' that the Space Pirates seem to cheap out on maintenance quite a bit.
