Thermal photos are cool and very handy! Unfortunately the cameras are very expensive. We should be able to make our own with a IR thermometer, a pan/tilt bracket and two servos. The trick is to mount the IR thermometer on the bracket and find some way to read the temperature value with our lovely Arduino board and have it control the backet to give us measurements for a given X,Y value. The values should then be assembled by a piece of software that can assign colors from dark blue over red and yellow to white depending and make a resulting image…
