Tis the season for ghouls, goblins, and Ghost Hunters! If you’re a rabid Ghost Hunters fan like I am, you’ve probably followed this series since its inception, and watched as the technology they utilized evolved! Recently, I’ve noticed Jason has been using what I thought was simply a thermal imaging app on his phone, and became intrigued! What was this new device, and how can I get it?!
After doing some research, I found it was likely the FLIR ONE! The FLIR ONE is a thermal imager that you connect to your phone and it allows you to turn your phone into a thermal infrared camera once you download the necessary app - pretty impressive, right? For those that need a bit more explanation, thermal imaging is a camera that sees heat signatures – allowing you to identify warmer and colder spots. Not only is this perfect for any ghost hunting needs to track down unexplainable cold spots or apparitions, but after doing some further research, I found a ton of uses for thermal imaging, especially for people who are into DIY repairs.
For many of us, it begins to get cold right after Halloween, and your home can start feeling quite drafty. Wouldn’t it be so much easier if you could locate spots in your home that could use a bit of insulation? The FLIR ONE would be perfect for checking your home for such issues, as well as others. It’s also helpful when looking at pipes and hoses in your home or car, as you can easily identify leaks. You can even use it while camping to check for predators at night that may be wandering too close – but let’s not kid ourselves, you’re checking for zombies!
