If you have a iPhone 5 or 5S than FLIR One brings something interesting for you. The FLIR One is a case for the iPhone that comes with both thermal imaging and visible light cameras. The thermal imaging unit allows for some pretty cool night vision viewing and snapshot opportunities that are currently unavailable on smartphones. FLIR calls their thermal imaging camera technology Lepton. FLIR explains the procedure of thermal shooting in their website-
FLIR ONE™ is a non-contact device that detects infrared energy (heat) and converts it into an electronic signal, which is then processed to produce a thermal image on your phone screen and perform temperature calculations. Heat sensed by an infrared camera can be very precisely measured, allowing you to use the FLIR ONE™ in a variety of practical and fun ways by revealing a thermal world not visible to the unaided eye.
With the FLIR One’s companion application, users can get temperature readouts and even manipulate the colors that are displayed in the thermal imaging mode. There is an app that goes with the system, and can give you precise temperature readouts and it even lets you control the colors on the display. And don't worry about it killing your battery life, the FLIR One comes with a self-contained battery that lasts for four hours.
An official price for the FLIR One hasn’t been announced, but they said that the price will be less than $350. Also, it’s not available for sale yet, but you can register on their website and they’ll email you when it becomes available. This year, the company will release an SDK for developers to build apps for the technology. And Android compatible version of FLIR One will be released in 2014 for selected Android models.
There may be a day where all of our smartphones have thermal viewing capabilities built right in. For now, there’s the FLIR One add-on. It worth checking I bet. And dont miss the opportunity to see the this video. No matter you are buying it or not you must see what FLIR One is mean to do.
