HemaVision Smart Thermal Imager Actually Tells You What that Cool (or Hot) Image Means

 |  |  |  |  |  |  April 8, 2015


Last year, HemaImaging made thermal vision accessible by creating an affordable smartphone add-on for both iOS and Android devices. But the company wanted something that’s more versatile and even more useful, so it’s working on the HemaVision, a standalone thermal imager that will be able to give you measurements in real-time and tell you if that’s within normal parameters.

The HemaVision has an 82×62 thermal sensor, a 5MP CMOS sensor, a 320×240 touchscreen, an SD card slot, a Wi-Fi chip and a battery that lasts up to 4h per charge. The company is working with industry experts to create apps for specific instances. The mockups below show three sample apps: one for monitoring heat-related problems in electrical equipment, one that looks for hidden pockets of water and one that looks at insulation problems.

Thanks to its Wi-Fi connectivity, you’ll be able to stream live feed from the HemaVision to a mobile device, so you can mount it to a quadcopter for instance and check out places that will otherwise be out of reach. You’ll also be able to upload images straight to your Dropbox account or HemaImaging’s upcoming cloud service.

My only concern about this device is that we don’t know just how easy to understand it will be. Based on HemaImaging’s presentation, I’d err on the side of caution and say that in its current state the HemaVision is more for professionals than for ordinary folks. Pledge at least $270 (USD) on Kickstarter to receive a HemaVision thermal imager as a reward.
