    Hello, when i look at my iPhone 4S with night vision goggles on, there is a strange strobe light that comes out of the speaker holes.

    Sometimes it is a flight line that stays level with the horizon. So if i rotate the phone it doesn't rotate with the phone it stays flat with the horizon. Other times, it is a dot, a very bright dot or beam. If i turn off the phone and turn it back on, It stays solid for about 10 seconds then turns back to a strobe.

    Anyone got any idea's on this? I'm thinking some sort of mind control device...

    It's the proximity sensor. Depending on how you have your phone setup, it will light up at different times. All completely normal.

    I totally misplaced my night vision goggles. I know they are around here somewhere. As soon as I find them, I will be checking this out.
