Entry Description: The FLIR ONE is the first personal thermal imaging device for the iPhone 5 and 5s, dramatically extending the limits of human vision to the infrared light spectrum and unlocking a host of practical applications for the consumer ranging from home improvement, outdoor recreation and personal safety. Available in late spring for $349 (U.S. dollars), the compact 3.2-oz. attached accessory fits onto the iPhone displaying a live thermal image of the world right on the phone’s screen, giving users the ability to see in an array of conditions including complete darkness, smoke or dense fog. Using special sensor technology that was originally developed for military night vision, FLIR ONE converts heat, which is emitted from every object on earth, into color images. These color images allow users to not only see in the dark, but to also observe differences in temperature of fractions of a degree. Created to enhance the FLIR ONE device experience, the FLIR ONE MX APP, which will be available for free at the Apple app store, provides a simple and intuitive user interface with a variety of functions that make it easy to collect and share compelling and useful thermal images. It can load captured images directly to the camera roll and allows users to easily share on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and other social media channels. The device houses its own battery source that can power the devices for two hours of continuous use. It can measure temperature differences as small as 0.1 degrees Celsius from a range of 0 to 100 degrees Celsius. It also has a VGA visible camera that blends the thermal image with the visible light spectrum, creating a crisp and clear image for the user.
