DIY thermal camera

Few months ago I’ve got idea to make FLIR (thermal imaging) camera. Professional grade equipment is very expensive. I’ve found few ideas how you can do that. On of them is instead of using expensive infrared matrix, use single point thermal sensor, and put it on servo motors, to scan view in X and Y axis. So I’ve taken MLX90614 thermal sensor with 5 degree FOV, and STM32 dev board with color LCD. Frankly results are even better than I’ve expected.
