    New Flir One and Flir One Pro thermal cameras
    • FLIR ONE 3rd gen


      Today FLIR announced its third generation FLIR ONE® thermal camera attachment for iOS and Android devices. With an all-new design and the lowest-priced FLIR ONE camera to date $199, it’s an ideal device for those who are new to thermal’s ‘superpowers.’

      If you’re new to thermal technology, there’s something about transforming your smartphone into a thermal camera that gives you a new perspective on the world—a sixth sense. Like previous FLIR ONEs, the third generation FLIR ONE equips users with the superpower of thermal sight. Even in complete darkness, users can visualize small temperature differences through the lens of the FLIR ONE. Whether you’re trying to determine why your room is so cold, why your wall is starting to bubble and turn awful new colors, or just trying to find where your dog is hiding in the backyard, the FLIR ONE will help you see the formerly unseen.

      MSX® Technology

      Like previous FLIR ONE models, the third generation includes both a thermal and visible camera. The magic happens through FLIR’s patented, multispectral dynamic imaging, or MSX technology, which embosses a visible image over a thermal. The end-result is a better, crisper image, which helps improve overall quality and readability when you need it most. With the FLIR ONE, you won’t need to guess, you’ll know.

      OneFit™ Adjustable Connector

      Another key advancement FLIR developed with the third generation FLIR ONE is the new OneFit adjustable-height connector. The OneFit allows you to adjust the length of the FLIR ONE connector so it can attach over most phone cases, eliminating the hassle of removing your case prior to use. The new FLIR ONE also features a USB-C version for Android, so whether you want to take a picture of an object or take a thermal selfie (a ‘thermie’), Android users can flip the camera in the direction they want.

      Redesigned FLIR ONE App

      Users access their thermal camera through the completely redesigned FLIR ONE app. Featuring a modern app design, users can take, store and send thermal photos and videos. The new app also allows you to easily share your thermal photos and see how other FLIR ONE owners use thermal imaging as well. To further ease the learning curve, the new app also includes guided problem solving modules, allowing you to see examples of household issues the FLIR ONE can help you solve.


      We built the FLIR ONE Pro for serious do-it-yourselfers, contractors, home inspectors and anyone who wants the most power and functionality from their smartphone thermal camera. The FLIR ONE Pro delivers a major advancement in thermal image quality and capabilities available in a smartphone thermal camera. Cost will be $399.

      Four Times the Resolution

      The new FLIR ONE Pro features our Lepton thermal microcamera, which has four times the resolution of the standard third generation FLIR ONE, and a high-definition visible camera. Combine these with our patented MSX imagery, which embosses a visible image onto a thermal image for crisper images, and new patent-pending video signal processing technology, VividIR™, we create the clearest image ever created on a FLIR ONE.

      Pro-Ready Tools

      We’ve also packed the FLIR ONE Pro with more tools and capabilities that pro users want in a thermal device. Once attached to a smartphone, the thermal camera is accessible through the completely redesigned FLIR ONE app, but this is where the Pro differs from the standard FLIR ONE. The app automatically recognizes when the FLIR ONE Pro is attached and then offers a host of pro-capable tools including radiometry, or the ability to take accurate temperature measurements, and even multiple temperature spots for situations where pinpointing temperature differences in a scene is critical. After taking an image or video, the FLIR ONE Pro then allows users to analyze image and send reports to their clients at the touch of a button to streamline communications and save time on the job site.

      Both the new third generation FLIR ONE and FLIR ONE Pro will be available worldwide in the first half of 2017 at established FLIR partners and at Customers can pre-register today for the FLIR ONE and FLIR ONE Pro at

    Semiconductors tragedy: 5nm LSI SOC design cost will be around $500 millions
    • At 5nm it’s likely that only a few companies will be able to afford it. “It will be expensive,” Johnson said. “Manufacturing costs at 5nm will probably be 2.5 to 3 times more than at the 16nm/14nm generation. Design costs will continue to skyrocket. This will put fully integrated 5nm chips out of reach for a large number of consumer applications, and limit them to only the market segments demanding the highest levels of performance and (those) willing to pay for it.”

      At 5nm, it will cost $500 million or more to design a complex system-on-a-chip (SoC), according to Gartner. In comparison, it will cost $271 million to design a 7nm SoC, roughly 9 times the cost for a 28nm planar device.

      Future of camera industry is written above.

      It is also one of core things that lies in Samsung decision to pull NX from market, as their NX1 LSI was 28nm and next 2016 LSI was designed as 16nm device with 2018 plan to go to 10nm. With their sales volume you can't cover even design expenses already.

    Capitalism: Imperialism and FoxConn
    • Confidential government records obtained by the Times reveal, among other things, that the city of Zhengzhou helped finance the construction of Foxconn's factory and housing for its workers; that it provides discounted energy and constructed power generators and other infrastructure to support the facility; that it has waived and deeply cut corporate and value-added taxes; that it helps Foxconn hire and train workers; that it put its factory inside a "bonded zone" that made selling devices within China easier; and that it spent a total of $10 billion to upgrade an airport to make exporting products from China quicker and easier for Apple and other companies.

      And this is normal, this is that is called imperialism, as government and big corporations form close bonds. It is same across all modern countries. Unfortunately, due to liberal brainwashing it frequently comes as surprise to people.

    No such thing as Alpha exist in wolf packs
    • "Alpha" connotes top ranking in some kind of hierarchy, so an alpha wolf is by definition the top-ranking wolf. Because among wolves in captivity the hierarchies are gender-based, there are an alpha male and an alpha female.

      The way in which alpha status has been viewed historically can be seen in studies in which an attempt is made to distinguish future alphas in litters of captive wolf pups. For example, it was hypothesized that "the emotional reactivity of the dominant cub, the potential alpha animal (emphasis mine) of the pack, might be measurably different from the subordinate individuals," and that "it might then be possible to pick out the temperament characteristics or emotional reactivity of potential alpha or leader wolves, and of subordinates" Furthermore, "Under normal field conditions, it seems improbable that timid, low ranking wolves would breed" . This view implies that rank is innate or formed early, and that some wolves are destined to rule the pack, while others are not.

      Contrary to this view, I propose that all young wolves are potential breeders and that when they do breed they automatically become alphas. Even in captive packs, individuals gain or lose alpha status, so individual wolves do not have an inherent permanent social status, even though captive pups show physiological and behavioral differences related to current social rank. Secondly, wolves in captivity breed readily, and I know of no mature captive individuals that failed to breed when paired apart from a group, as would be the case if there were inherently low-ranking, nonbreeders.

      Third, in the wild, most wolves disperse from their natal packs and attempt to pair with other dispersed wolves, produce pups, and start their own packs . I know of no permanent dispersers that failed to breed if they lived long enough.

      Wolves do show considerable variation in dispersal age, distance, direction, and other dispersal behavior (see references above), and conceivably these are related to the intralitter variation discussed above. However, unless a maturing pack member inherits a position that allows it to breed with a stepparent in its own pack, sooner or later it will disperse and attempt to breed elsewhere.

      Labeling a high-ranking wolf alpha emphasizes its rank in a dominance hierarchy. However, in natural wolf packs, the alpha male or female are merely the breeding animals, the parents of the pack, and dominance contests with other wolves are rare, if they exist at all. During my 13 summers observing the Ellesmere Island pack, I saw none.

      Thus, calling a wolf an alpha is usually no more appropriate than referring to a human parent or a doe deer as an alpha. Any parent is dominant to its young offspring, so "alpha" adds no information. Why not refer to an alpha female as the female parent, the breeding female, the matriarch, or simply the mother? Such a designation emphasizes not the animal's dominant status, which is trivial information, but its role as pack progenitor, which is critical information.

    Capitalism: Google started open censorship as it is now "repository of facts"
    • Google’s search engine will no longer show to people any arguments supporting theory that the Holocaust did not happened at advertised scale. Google removed a result for the query “did the Holocaust happen” from Stormfront site, which previously appeared at the top of the first page. The removal follows a smaller change that simply ranked the page a bit lower.

      It’s still willing to spit out some ugly results for other loaded queries about race and religion — although some of them seem to have been cleaned up as well.

      As we are slowly going towards open terrorist dictatorship of bourgeoisie (aka fascism) we see them carefully trying their new instruments.
