    Where/when can I get one? They say the initial offering would be $150 as opposed to $325 later.
    Sounds like the kind of thing that could get passed around here.

    It looks like you can order one early for $150...or $175 now. The upside is you get it cheap. The downside might be that the bugs aren't fully worked out yet. I just love the idea of having an affordable thermal imager for the DIYer.

    on the cnet page, hit the link that says "a low cost thermal imaging camera". It takes you to the indiegogo page. looks like they are in a fund raising mode!

    My understanding is that regular digital cameras converted to IR are fine for IR photography, but not useful as thermal imagers because the detectors are not sensitive to the far IR heat radiation.

    I'd like to know the same. From the article I found my way to the indiegogo campaign site and also their company website and neither has any link or instructions on how to preorder :(
