Looking like something out of science fiction, the FLIR One iPhone personal thermal imager uses heat gradients to generate a picture of heat differentials, allowing the user to literally see in the dark. Whether using the device to spot heat leaking around an old window frame, discover a hairline crack in a water pipe before it bursts or deciding whether that bump in the night was an intruder or simply Fido trying to reach a treat on the counter, the FLIR One can be used in myriad ways. A simple, free app available from FLIR pairs the device with your iPhone 5 or 5S (Android versions will soon be available) and within seconds the power of thermal imaging is in your hands.

“With the FLIR One, it is possible to observe an intruder in complete darkness, based solely on heat differentials.” —Jay Grazio, Associate Editor.

Why Lightweight Carbines Are a Game Changer

Technology and demand are driving a light-rifle trend that shows no signs of slowing down. Purpose-built, flyweight guns are a dream to carry and shoot, but the additional machining, exotic materials and manufacturing methods that can bring something like an AR rifle down to 4.5 pounds make it expensive.
