The Thermal Camera is an application for creating images with the effect of a thermal imager. This solution is a program for practical jokes that only simulates the detection of warm and cold zones in the camera lens of an Android device. About this, developers warn users on the page of their product in the official market. Master the application is not difficult. Just start the Thermal Imager and, tapping the main button, point the device’s camera at the desired object.
After some time, you will notice that the colors on the screen begin to change - various shades smoothly flow into three colors - red, yellow and blue, sometimes giving a little green. By clicking on the button with the camera icon, you can take a picture that will be saved in the smartphone gallery.
The application imitates the operation of an infrared scanner, acting on special algorithms implemented by developers. The color scheme directly depends on the lighting - objects that are in the light will be shown with “warm” shades, while darkened objects will be “cold” regardless of the actual temperature.
How to use it
The application has nothing to do with real thermal imagers. Modern smartphones lack infrared light and temperature sensors. For this reason, using this, or any other application, you cannot create pictures in the infrared range. The application has a convenient interface and allows you to switch between different modes.
- “smart” application of color filters for camera images;
- switching between three algorithms and color schemes;
- creating photos with the effect of the thermal imager;
- simple and intuitive interface;
- compatibility with all current versions of the Android operating system.
