Hey Lepton Makers,
FLIR is pleased to announce today the launch of Lepton 3.5, a new member of the Lepton family that adds both radiometry and an enhanced scene dynamic range. The addition of radiometry and a temp range from -10 to 400° means your makes can accurately read temperatures in a much wider range of applications. Ready to jump in and buy one? Get it here!
I know many of you like a good challenge – especially with a shot at winning cool prizes – so I’m also excited to announce the Thermal by FLIR maker challenge! To win you just have to make something cool, useful, and/or unique using Lepton 3.5 and the new PureThermal2 board with Thermal by FLIR from GroupGets. What can you win? How about an expenses-paid trip to Santa Barbara to present your project to the FLIR Lepton team AND a $500 gift certificate to pick up cool gear from the GroupGets store? Sounds awesome, right?! Here’s how it’ll go down:
- Submit your product ideas here between March 27th and April 30th, 2018
- We’ll announce the finalists (top 5 ideas) and send them a free Lepton 3.5 and PureThermal2 board with Thermal by FLIR by May 4th
- Finalists submit their prototypes to us and upload their code to Github by June 18th

A few weeks ago, the FLIR booth at Mobile World Congress was quite the hot spot, showcasing the first five Thermal by FLIR partners and their Lepton-based products. The Cat S61, Arsenz ThermoGlass, Casio EX-FR10, Panasonic Toughpad FZ-M1 Thermal Imaging Solution, and Tinkerforge Thermal Imaging Bricklet products all got a lot of attention. Is your product next?

Just a reminder that we’re refreshing the Lepton community showcase to show off the latest and greatest Makes by people just like you. Have an awesome Lepton-based Make you’d like to put in the spotlight? Submit it today for possible inclusion in the Lepton Maker community showcase.
