Flir One iPhone Thermal Camera Released
Thermal cameras can be used for all sorts of things from monitoring body temperature for coaches to finding thermal leaks in your home. The catch is that most thermal cameras cost $1000 or more. During CES 2014 this past January, Flir, a leader in thermal cameras, unveiled a cheaper thermal camera accessory for the iPhone that looks very slick.
The accessory is called the Flir One and it will fit the iPhone 5 and iPhone 5S. The camera sells for $349(USD) and is available starting today. At that price, it is much cheaper than the next cheapest thermal camera in the Flir range priced at around $1000.
Flir says that a version of this camera accessory for Android users is coming next year. A version of the accessory for iPhone 6 models can also be produced quickly according to the company.
