Check out this project to build your very own thermographic camera.
Well, we are back from Maker Faire and (at least partially) recovered. We hope that if you were able to make it you swung by our booth and joined us for a soldering workshop (or three). We had an amazing time hanging out with some of our customers, exploring NYC, and checking out all the cool projects at Maker Faire. We'll have a full recap with photos and videos coming up in the next couple weeks. In the meantime, let's talk about a cool project - the Cheap Thermocam.
The Cheap Thermocam is a home-built thermographic camera that uses an Arduino UNO, a large and a medium servo, a laser card module, and a few other parts to create a DIY camera that is capable of taking themographic images. As you can see in the video above, it works very well for a thermographic camera that costs right around $150.
Right now the developer is working on a 3D model for a custom case from Ponoko so the project can be enclosed in a nice, finished design. Best off, the developer's website has detailed instructions, code and information to build your very own thermocam. Great work!
