Technology marches on, an Open Source project that has the potential to have an impact on civilian sUAS has hit its’s Kickstarter goal of $20,000. Add this to the coffee can SAR and a camera and you begin to have a fairly powerful sensor suite. Not yet at current military standards, but look what Open Source has done to the price of autopilots,in 2007 it was not uncommon for $10,000 USD to be the starting price point now 3DR are selling GPS equipped autopilots for $180. Where will this and the SAR project be in 5 years time if a community of developers get behind them? Its bound to go far in these energy concious times. A disruptive technology if ever I saw one. Well done Andy Rawson and Marcel Damhuis.
The IR-Blue lets you see the temperature of things around you. It uses a 64 zone non-contact InfraRed sensor array to read the temperature of what you are viewing. The IR-Blue connects using Bluetooth to your iPhone or Android device to show the temperature readings as colors on the screen.
