Flir One: Personal Thermal Imaging Device for the iPhone


Thu, Jan 9th, 2014 12:00 by capnasty NEWS

The Flir One is a thermal imaging device that displays a "live thermal image of the world around you right on the phone’s screen, and captures still images and videos." The device mounts on top of the iPhone much like a protective case and has its own battery to avoid draining your phone (that same power can be diverted to the phone, if needed).

Everything around you either emits or reflects heat energy. Thermal imaging makes the otherwise invisible world of heat energy visible to your eyes. Visible light doesn’t affect the thermal world, so you can see equally well in highly lit and totally dark environments — the thermal image is the same. This allows you to visualize the effects of many real-world events and conditions that are otherwise impossible to detect. There are countless new, useful, and fun ways thermal imaging will integrate into your daily life. The list of uses is long and will grow dramatically when the consumer world begins to See the Heat.
