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.
