The FLIR can turn your iPhone into a thermal camera

Posted Jan 8, 2014

FLIR has announced a new camera case that can turn your iPhone 5 into a thermal imaging camera. As you could imagine, FLIR is known for selling technology to law enforcement agencies and the military.

The FLIR thermal imaging smartphone case will be available for the iPhone 5 and iPhone 5s initially for a cost of $350. It has a built-in battery that can power the two cameras that it uses for up to two hours.

One camera generates the thermal image while the other is a standard camera lens that the FLIR app uses for generating and overlaying outlines to make it easier to recognize humans, objects, and text.
