  1. FLIR's ONE thermal camera for the iPhone was a pretty nifty gadget when it launched this past summer. But because it arrived in the form of a case for the iPhone 5 and iPhone 5s, it became obsolete almost immediately...

    I dont see very many practical uses for it. You could maybe use it to play Predator.

    I used to use thermal cameras to check for mold behind walls, and hot spots where the insulation might be poor... Might also be a good tool to use for hunters?

    There aren't many. But like was pointed out above good for finding where insulation is weak. My work pays what I think is an excessive amount of money to have a company come in and do thermal imaging of our electrical panels/boxes to see where we may have some issues. So there are some practical uses, then there are some fun uses. At this price point it can be reasonably justified to have some fun with.
    Unless someone can prove me wrong, I don't think you can. Its just going to pick up the surface temperature of whatever solid object you are pointing it at, nothing behind that unless it is radiating enough heat to warm up that portion of the solid surface.
