High end thermal imaging devices are in the thousands of dollars these days so how cool would it be to have a plug in camera for your Android device that would let you see live real time thermal images and cost less that $300.00.
Well you can get one right here.
This true thermal imaging camera detects infrared light that all objects emit, and uses the data from over 32,000 thermal pixels to create a visible image on your Android phone. In broad daylight or complete darkness, you can now be aware of your surroundings. The possibilities are endless.
Check out this short video review from CNET:
The Seek camera allows you to literally see heat, making it possible to spot people and animals in daylight, total darkness, or in obscured visibility conditions. This true thermal imaging camera uses the data to create a visible image on your smartphone. Prior to the Seek Thermal camera, this type of resolution was only available in cameras costing $3,000 and above.
A few common ways to use the Seek camera:
Hunting: Scout terrain, track game, and follow bloodtrails
Boating: Detect and locate harmful objects on the water at night
Safety and Security: Scan a dark parking lot or around your home for danger
Home Inspection: Reliable, non-contact testing and thermography
Electrical Engineering: Inspect components, circuit boards and assemblies.
