FLIR Lepton Thermal Imager - Batch 1
This Campaign is now Funded and Closed! Batch 2 is now open here: https://www.groupgets.com/campaigns/31-flir-lepton-thermal-imager-batch-2
The FLIR Lepton™ is the most compact longwave infrared (LWIR) camera core available as an OEM/hobbyist/maker product. It packs a resolution of 80 × 60 pixels into a camera body that is smaller than a dime.
Because we are so excited about this module, we collaborated with Pure Engineering to make a small development board to help you quickly start developing your applications on a Pi or Arduino. It is available here from our friends at Tindie: https://www.tindie.com/products/PureEngineering/flir-lepton-thermal-camera-breakout-2/. Pure Engineering also created a homepage and github repo for data sheets and sample code for the Lepton dev board here: http://www.pureengineering.com/projects/lepton.
Please note that FLIR will not provide technical support for orders placed here so be sure to use the "github" repo, the Pure Engineering portal, and the campaign discussion tab to connect with other developers for support. We will also try to help, and all Leptons will be under FLIR's standard warranty for all buyers (big and small). For this batch, shipping is FREE to US addresses. Shipping to anywhere else in the world will result in a flat fee of $305 for the Lepton and shipping. We are releasing Leptons in batches so that early adopters can get started quickly on their projects without having to wait for the 1000th backer. Please help get the word out about this campaign and this platform.
We at GroupGets seeded this campaign ourselves to give users a good idea of what is possible with the platform, and we hope that users will respond with their own examples. Please help make this campaign a success and be part of a new and unique online DIY movement inspired by independent development.
Only a couple of days to go on this batch! If you missed it don't worry, we'll roll batch 2 out soon after this batch closes.
Through a special arrangement with FLIR, this is the only way to buy Lepton in small quantities for evaluation and development. You are literally paying the same price per unit as if you bought the full minimum order quantity.

Ok I found out and it's not pretty. For UPS it's looking like $125 USD with insurance and tracking. We get a volume discount for US orders (which we pass on to users of course) so it's possible they will apply it to this. I can not get confirmation on the discount until Monday. They tell me that customs issues drives the price up. The other option is to use the US Postal Service but I think that it is too risky for something like this.
Good news everybody, it looks like we can ship anywhere in the world w/in 3-5 business with tracking and full insurance via the US Postal Services for $55.00 USD. We can fit multiple Leptons in the carrier package so it will be the same price for orders that have multiple Leptons.
If anybody has cheaper options through a corporate account, please email me and we'll ship through your corp account.
