Community Corner – April 24, 2015: The Featured Projects from this Week

Featured Adafruit Google+ Community Project

(Note: Google+ login required.)

Charles Werbick posted an awesome thermal imaging project today in our community that uses a Raspberry Pi 2!

Happy Friday  #Piday  Everybody!

For this one here’s an affordable (if low-res) Thermal Imaging project from a Raspberry Pi 2, a Pi Camera, a display(HDMI or PiTFT will do)  and a Melexis MLX90621 16×4 thermopile array. Everything but the MLX can be had at #adafruit  for around $125. The MLX90621 is available from Digikey for under $75. (In the video I call it an MLX90620. Ignore me, they are interchangeable with the 90621 having a faster refresh and lower noise.) (read more)
