Do you see what I see?
Seek Thermal pitches their Compact product for contractors, to allow them better to identify where a building has leaks or insulation is damaged. And it would be great for that. If you're on a CERT team, it'd be great to have one in your bag for search and rescue. But we're brainstorming some everyday uses:
- If you have a huge server farm (or even a tiny closet), it'd be great to walk in and immediately identify machines that are in danger of overheating before it happens.
Or check out your switchboard and see which circuits are drawing higher current than the others.
Figure out which beer just got put in the fridge and which one's been chilling overnight.
We use night vision goggles when TNRing feral cats, but this would work, too.
For folks who are super-paranoid when camping? See what's outside your tent without stepping foot out there.
And, of course, be on equal-footing with those dang Predators. Well, vision-wise at least.
The Seek Compact Thermal Image Camera captures over 32,000 temperature data points. It fits into either the iOS Lightning or Micro-USB port on your device. And since it uses infrared technology, it's equally at home day or night.
