FLIR Systems has unveiled its next generation FLIR ONE thermal imaging attachment for iOS and Android devices.
The new device features an upgraded Lepton thermal camera core with four times the resolution of the original FLIR ONE. Combined with multi-spectral dynamic imaging (MSX) that embosses the visible camera image onto the thermal image, FLIR ONE improves the user's ability to decipher details.
"With the introduction of FLIR ONE, we helped iPhone users discover a superpower through thermal
imaging," said Jeff Frank, Senior Vice President and Chief Product Officer at FLIR. "With the next-
gen FLIR ONE, we’re thrilled to extend that superpower to Android users as well, while also
supporting a range of Apple devices all combined into a lighter, more powerful package."
The FLIR ONE attachment works via a companion app that displays live infrared imagery. FLIR ONE detects invisible heat energy, letting you 'see' and measure subtle changes in temperature.
There are various uses for the device, including:
● Home improvement: More clearly identify and pinpoint heat loss, energy inefficiency and
● Outdoor adventures: Observe wildlife at a greater distance, day or night, survey a campsite,
● Security and safety: See at night more clearly than ever, detect intruders, and see through
light fog and smoke.
● Creativity: Observe abstract patterns and create artistic images with greater thermal detail.
Notably, there is also FLIR ONE SDK available for iOS that gives developers the ability to access absolute temperature data for all pixels and control the Lepton camera’s shutter mode, in both manual and automatic settings.
The FLIR ONE will be available for pre-order online from FLIR.com mid-year and will be available
through retail partners across the globe later this year.
