There is almost no-end to the power and versatility of today’s smartphones. Just when you might think we’ve seen it all, another company pops up with a new set of features. Private eye? Super spy? Home security? You got it. The Therm-App will deck out your smartphone with thermal and night vision imaging.

But now, consumers have another smartphone tool at their disposal. Since the camera portion of the Therm-App fits a number of smartphone models, almost anyone can get their own to run around in the dark for fun.

But the truly amazing part of Therm-App is how it combines cost-effective simplicity in such a mobile form. Have you seen what typical night vision or thermal optics look like? It’s easy to be mistaken for some cyborg or special-ops soldier while wearing some. Plus, the cost can be staggering, especially for someone who wants to be able to capture images at night.

The Therm-App device is currently available to Opgal customers, and has a whole line of accessories to boot. Visit their website for more information.

    This Therm-App would be good for Law Enforcement to use to see if someone’s car is hot at a vacant home showing an intruder. Or for personal use in winter time for hunters to spot game in the woods.
