Thermal Camera Imaging Brought to Your Daily Life, See Things Like Never Before
The Seek thermal camera is another affordable accessory designed to bring thermal imaging to mobile devices such as smartphones. The Seek thermal camera has two versions – one of Android-based smartphones equipped with micro USB and a different one designed for Apple smartphones or other iOS-based devices that use the newer Apple Lightning connector. The device is already available and is shipping to customers, though for the moment only the Android version is on sale and shipped as apparently the Apple model needs to go through some more approval from Apple to be sold as an official accessory. You can already order the Android-based Seek thermal camera for $199 USD, though it is only being shipped to customers in USA and Canada for the moment.
Other than the difference in the interface and the device the two camera models offer essentially the same specifications and these are actually quite attractive for the price you are asked to pay for the thermal camera module.

We are already waiting to see the release of the Apple model of the camera and the company to start shipping to Europe as well in order to be able to get one of these Seek Thermal Camera accessories to try it out. We have already mentioned that the price is really good for what specifications the device seems to offer and if the hardware is well matched with good software functionality, then this could be a great product to get and use as your first thermal camera.
