As close to 007 as your smartphone is going to get

Don’t fear the dark. If something goes bump in the night, Seek Thermal XR will show you what it is. 

The compact thermal-imaging camera attaches to a phone's charging port and displays a heat map on the screen through a downloadable app (Android or iOS). The Thermal XR can pick up on a range of temperatures from minus 40 degrees F to 626 degrees F. 

This little tool has a wide range of applications. Use it to spot heat-loss areas in your home or to make absolutely sure your campfire is extinguished. It could even work during search-and-rescue efforts, as it can allegedly detect heat up to 2,000 feet away and identify body shapes up to 425 feet away.
