FLIR launches thermal imaging device for smartphones at CES

Test and measurement equipment manufacturer FLIR Systems, Wilsonville, Ore., introduced a personal thermal imaging system at CES 2014 in Las Vegas this week and created quite a buzz. FLIR One is being promoted as the first personal thermal imaging device targeted at the consumer market. The device is priced at under $350, and puts thermal imaging technology in the hands of consumers. FLIR One is compact, easy-to-use, compatible with the iPhone5 and 5s and fits on the phone like a protective case. Once mounted, the device displays 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. Originally developed for military night vision, FLIR says this technology has revolutionized modern law enforcement, search and rescue, security, and surveillance.
