This is more a toy then useful. A proper Lepton core or hell even a Boson would make it a camera.

Wouldn't a Bentley be better than a Bicycle? Those are about the same price right

Why would you want to add a fundamental subatomic particle to the camera? Its already made of matter, so there's enough leptons as it is.
This is just meant to be a joke by the way...

A mini-thermal-cam in a 3D printed Case? Isn't this auf Copy of the "Thermika Fotilo" Made by the Make: Magazine?

Believe it or not, you can't patent the incredibly broad idea of putting a gizmo in a 3d-printed case.

Would it make more sense if you use a FLIR Lepton core? It has a greater resolution and is almost ready to use

Yeah, and it would make even more sense to just buy a thermal camera if you have a bunch of spare money and aren't keen on building stuff or learning anything. This is a pretty neat little sensor, though.

You're really comparing a $40 image sensor with a $260 one?

Very cool. Is it possible to make one with a higher resolution, or maybe one that overlays on a live video shot from a regular camera.

Very cool model but the overall price is way too expensive for the result it gives...

I'll try to build one using a Teensy-LC that I have laying around and a 160x124 SPI TFT. Let's see which frame rate this can achieve :)

I'm not hating, but it would be great if someone can give it a more industrial or tacticool look.

Well, here's a similar project

it's meant to repurpose the guts of a handheld imager, but maybe you could work the electronics from this project into it.

Love the casing. Reminds me of a Diana. Maybe I'll mod the top part to have a cold shoe.

So, it could be considered a DIYana camera...

We subconsciously modeled the body after that type of camera :-) Thank you for revealing this to us, wouldn't have known otherwise. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Diana_(camera)

you should of followed the "did you mean" link or just copy and paste adafruit's link... the ")" isn't include in the hyperlink... it something to do with the comments and thingiverse.
