For the same augmentation in Human Revolution, see Smart Vision.

Smart Vision is an eye augmentation in Deus Ex: Mankind Divided that when activated, highlights specific objects such as humans in the environment. The basic augmentation just highlights humans and bots, both neutral and hostile, but it can be upgraded to show items of interest such as weapons and ammunition.


Smart Vision is an optical membrane implant that enables users already equipped with the Eye-Know Retinal Prosthesis to locate and reveal persons and robots beyond walls and obstacles. By emitting frequency-modulated carrier waves, the sensor detects body heat, heart rate, respiration, and electrical activity, and then, through collaboration with the Wayfinder Radar, assembles a complete image of the persons or devices producing the detectable effect. It sends a two-dimensional representation of the target's silhouette to the retinal prosthesis, where it is projected as an overlay onto the user's field of view.

Wall-Penetrating ImagerEdit

The frequency modulated transmitter installed in the Smart Vision package provides limited-range penetration of low-density objects and cover obstacles, immediately revealing persons and devices present.

Rough Transmitter TuningEdit

Due to the sensitivity to the ambient electromagnetic field produced by the user's other installed augmentations, the Smart Vision frequency transmitters require a dedicated power supply to counteract a negative signal-to-noise ratio. With fine-tuning, the frequency modulator can be set to cancel-out the noise from the user's EM field, requiring less energy.

Fine Transmitter TuningEdit

Near-perfect tuning of the Smart Vision frequency modulator can significantly reduce the augmentation's power requirement.


Programmed to recognize thousands of item shapes, global ISO/IEC identification numbers, matrix codes, and manufacturer specifications, the MAGPIE upgrade to the Smart Vision's base system scans the visible area for useful items.
