Testing a FLIR Fever Screening Camera For Adafruit NYC (video) –
For years, all over Asia- at border crossings, businesses, schools thermal cameras are used to make sure people running high fevers are detected. This has helped slow the spread of COVID-19, flattening the curve. In order to protect their employees, Adafruit asks me to secure and send several models- I test one here. The UTi165K.
Note- normally I post links to buy the products I review, but because the UTi165K has a built-in lipo battery and due to the current crises it is very, very hard to ship them from China. *Be Careful of Scammers!* IR thermometers are already being counterfeited with questionable parts. My advice is to wait until Adafruit has verified units in stock.
These are available in NYC and NYS from Adafruit for now, expands to NJ, then the rest of the USA later.
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
