PASS has supplied a Flir One thermal camera case to The Gadget Show for a ghost-hunting feature in the Halloween edition of the programme.
There is no need to give everyone's favourite ghost-busting crew a call - with the Flir One you can catch ghosts yourself! The new Flir One, the company's second-generation thermal imaging camera for smartphones, proved to be the most popular ghost-hunting tool on Channel 5's Halloween edition of The Gadget Show.
Featured as part of Gadget Help, the Flir One camera case was pitted against two competing ghost-hunting products, with a viewer deciding which one was the best for ghost-hunting activities. The Flir One was the clear winner over an infrared spectrum monitoring system and a ghost-hunting teddy bear with integrated sensing technology.
Ghost hunters are interested in the technology behind thermal cameras as it allows them to visualise the heat of an area. It is widely believed that paranormal activity can cause an influence on the heat of objects, which is why ghost hunters use the cameras as an analysis tool.
The Flir One featured on The Gadget Show was supplied by PASS Ltd. Recognised as Flir's only platinum seller in the UK, PASS has been supplying thermal imaging equipment to a wide variety of markets for over a decade.
David Atkins, Sales Manager at PASS, comments: "We are thrilled to see the Flir One on The Gadget Show. The One is the thermal camera people have been waiting for. It is affordable, easy to use and plugs straight into your phone - we are delighted that The Gadget Show decided to feature it so people can learn more about it, how it works and why it is such a useful tool."
The second generation of the Flir One thermal imaging camera is made for use with both Android and iOS smartphones. It is shaped like a small dongle that just plugs into the micro-USB slot (Android) or Lightning connector (iOS), and there is a Flir app to run on the phone use the technology.
You do not even have to worry about the Flir One draining the device's battery, as it has its own internal power supply.
The applications for the technology are extensive: you can simply view people in thermal on your phone, use it around the house to spot hidden insulation problems, spot overheating electrical components, test temperature levels, and much, much more.
For those who have not been able to afford a thermal camera in the past, the Flir One is well worth considering. Just a few years ago, this technology did not exist; now, thanks to Flir's Lepton Core technology, thermography is more affordable than ever.
