Heat Camera

A camera sensitive to infrared light can show heat and cold

Stand in front of a video screen and see yourself in patterns of hot and cold! The special camera detects a type of radiation called infrared light and shows the resulting imagery on a video screen. Although our eyes can't see infrared light, we can feel it as heat. This camera makes infrared light visible to us, showing areas of higher and lower temperatures on our clothing and on our skin.
