Infragram: Infrared Photography Made Affordable

By Ruth Dunn on July 4th 2013

Public Laboratory has made it possible for hobby gardeners, farmers, and open source DIY scientists to measure plant health using a cheap and simple infrared camera.

Infragram was originally developed to monitor the damage to wetlands after the BP oil spill, but due to its price and how easy and simple it is to use, Public Laboratory has now made the camera available to anyone.

The camera allows gardeners, farmers and scientists to see plant health through by comparing infrared light to the visible light. This allows people to see the how plants are functioning in terms of photosynthesis and growth.

As well as being a huge benefit for people interested in checking plant health, the thermal images produced by Infragram are also quite beautiful and fascinating from an aesthetic point of view. People now have the opportunity to see the unseen beauty of objects for as little as $35.
