Apple and FLIR = iPhone 5 Thermal Cameras - Coming in August
Just what we needed! Now for about $350, everyone in your neighborhood who has an iPhone 5 can get this camera attachment for their phone.

I am sure no one will spy on their neighbors, scout homes and rob them when they are empty.

Of course, at $350 I would expect most law enforcement officers will now be carrying a thermal camera, and of course, they wouldn't abuse that tool right?

It is a cool little gadget, but this is one of those moments in time where if you don't keep up with a new technology you will be at a disadvantage in regards to safety and security.

In few years it'll be just part of your phone. Then the gov can log in and scan your home for goodies.

I don't have an iPhone, but am for the first time, considering getting one, just for this piece of tech.

Edit: Thanks for the pin! I hope people will consider both the "good" and "bad" uses this technology is capable of.

Hmm, I might need one to help me guard my scope. Had a homeless bum come up on me out of nowhere last time I "went remote," scared me shitless. My current solution has been to purchase a motion sensor that will deafen anything within a 100 meter radius if anything approaches me from behind. But of course that can't the difference between a cat and a human.

That's actually pretty cool. I've always wanted a thermal imaging camera but they're so damn expensive. Can't believe this is only gonna be 350 bucks.

If I remember correctly, Sony had a camcorder that when set to night vision could see through most light clothing at the beach!

Needless to say, that model sold out long ago!

That would depend on the quality of the camera. If the thermal sensitivity is high enough, you could detect things over a long distance.

I guess we really won't know the true capabilities of this camera until it hits the market.

The FLIR E4 is about $900 ish these days...

Using the already existing iphone processor... and FLIR app... all FLIR is selling you is a little "Camera" and a case with a built in battery...

the Iphone puts up the slack on the rest... screen, processor... etc...

Speaking of extermination...

you can use it to hunt down rats in crawl spaces without the use of lights.

and you can record it... might capture the rats soul leaving on video?

youre giving it to much credit (for now!)

because you cant see people inside the house with it. at best from a little distance you could see a glowing hot fusebox and a really heated room (in america i guess, when houses are made of wood)

but they arnt that super good yet as to actually use them for spying.

i mean this stuff was flirs normal professional stuff 10 years ago. now pocket sized.

its good for busting weed growers tho i quess
