Thermal Imaging For Your Android Device


In July, we reported on FLIR’s launch of a thermal imaging device for your iPhone 5. Android owners were pretty well left out in the cold. We are happy to report that the capability is now available for select android devices and it looks to be very impressive.

The manufacturer claims detection of human targets at 500m (1600 ft.) and vehicle targets at 1500m (4900 ft.), which is impressive for a clip on device.
