FLIR ONE Places a Thermal Image Camera on an Apple iPhone 5 Case, Android Coming

FLIR ONE is the world's first private thermal imager, and slides right onto an Apple iPhone 5 or Apple iPhone 5s.

FLIR ONE(TM), is the first consumer-oriented thermal imaging system, which will be available as an Apple iPhone case for about $350. Introduced today at CES 2014, FLIR ONE places the power of thermal imaging technology into the palm of the consumer via an easy-to-use smartphone accessory case.

FLIR ONE attaches to any Apple iPhone 5 or 5s smartphone and displays a live thermal image on the phone's screen, giving users the unprecedented ability to see the world in a way the naked eye cannot, including in complete darkness. With a targeted MSRP of $349, FLIR ONE senses heat rather than light utilizing FLIR's revolutionary new Lepton(TM) camera core.

Users of FLIR ONE (TM) can detect intruders in total darkness, find a lost pet, or see through smoke in an emergency using a FLIR ONE.

Also, homeowners and contractors with a FLIR ONE can easily identify heat or cooling leaks in buildings, find studs in walls, or locate water damage. An outdoor enthusiast can observe wildlife, day or night, navigate in the dark, determine if the day's catch is fully cooked, or make sure a campfire is out by using FLIR ONE.
