SparkFun has made available a new interesting development kit that allows you to get your hands on a FLIR Lepton thermal imaging sensor along with a breakout board specially developed for it in a single package that you can order. There are alternative ways in which you can get the Lepton thermal sensor such as a group buy or by purchasing a complete FLIR ONE Thermal Imaging Accessory for iPhone 5 and iPhone 5S and disassembling it to take out the sensor from it. But you also need to get the breakout board fr the sensor developed by Pure Engineering as well.

The FLiR Dev Kit offered by SparkFun has the breakout board as well as a the Lepton longwave infrared (LWIR) imager and is available for $349.95 USD, making it easy to get everything you need to start developing your own thermal imaging projects with an Arduino, Raspberry Pi or an ARM based development tool. Note that sourcing the sensor separately and the breakout board as well you could end up with a slightly lower cost, but it could take more time or efforts to get your hands on the hardware, so the SparkFun kit can be an interesting alternative if they have it in stock.
