Thermal imaging camera

It turns out my local library has thermal imaging cameras that you can borrow for a week. This particular one requires a free download from the app store, and you pug it into the port of your iphone. They have android ones too.

So I got it last night and played around with it a bit. I'll post a few, but for now, he're me running cold water over my hand. Visible light, compared to IR.

how much fun is that? I need not to be distracted from the job search/other shit I need to attend to... but..... I borrowed a metal detector last year (because I didn't know where our two were -didn't help me find them though....)

Why did it give you the water temp and not your hand, because you aim it?

OMSI Museum in Portland has a thermal imaging camera you can walk up to, and look at the results in a giant screen. I like to see how much insulation my beard is providing.

You do aim it. It has two side by side cameras. A visible light camera and the IR camera. The idea is that in the app, you can swipe back and forth to see clearly what you are looking at. They donít line up perfectly at all distances. Close up, like 2 feet away from the object, the misalignment is obvious. They seem to be calibrated to line up with each other at a distance from across the room. More of a sweeping wide angle view of the side of a house.

Itís mainly intended to see where your home might need weatherstripping or insulation.

I took a picture of my wife about five minutes after she had climbed into bed. You can see the blankets insulate well, but are starting to warm up.

Then my son jumped onto the bed next to her for a minute or so, he got up and left, and I took a picture of my wife alone. You can see his lingering heat signature.

Cold to the touch objects like a table saw surface donít hold on to residual heat. But a warm object like a pine table top or vinyl floor do.

A lot of people are saying that the fart idea may be one of the best, maybe even THE best idea in the history of people having ideas.
