Seek Ther­mal

Mac Format - - GADGETS - $199 (about £123) ther­

What is it? This ther­mal cam­era plugs into the Light­ning port of your iOS de­vice, giv­ing you a heat-sens­ing view of what’s around you on your phone’s screen us­ing the ac­com­pa­ny­ing app. The cam­era is a mea­gre 205x156 pix­els, but since those pix­els can de­tect heat from -40°C to 330°C, we’ll chill out (ha!) a bit and let it off. When’s it due? It’s hot to trot on the Seek Ther­mal site now. Why are we ex­cited? Well, it’s re­ally cool (we’ll stop now) to see things mov­ing in a ther­mal view. That alone pos­si­bly isn’t worth over a hun­dred quid though, but Seek Ther­mal has pointed out some of its more prac­ti­cal uses. Aside from see­ing liv­ing things mov­ing in the dark (lo­cate your dog if it runs off!), the app can tell you how hot some­thing ac­tu­ally is, which is handy for cook­ing. There’s even DIY tasks where a heat view can come in use­ful.
