You could always use stock footage of Reticles
Or you could use the binocular preset
and add some neon light lines. Mix in some futuristic font titles.

Well, since your using Vegas (I have it to) a timecode would make it look a little futuristic. This is sort of random but it would look good. Make it time how long you have been looking though them.

section of the AlamDV Plug-ins library actually has quite a few display overlays you might find helpful, in addition to the ones referenced by Super Effects.

I would try taking axeman's suggestion of using some of those Plug-ins, and then combine them with your own creation using the neon light engine. I made a pretty good looking futuristic-looking binocular thing just using the neon lights, but if you add in some plugins it will look even better. Also try grading the shots like greenish/orangish/redish or some other color to make it look very different than the other shots in your movie.
