It's a 3rd party product. Maybe you can find one on e-bay. But from the sounds of it, it's not very effective unless the person is not wearing much to begin with.

In other news on a similer topic. I thought I read that the US is supposed to get the GameBoy DS before Japan. I'm excited about it comming out.

Wasn't there a Sony videocam that had the same properties when it was released, hence got some hast y mods by Sony?

/me still remembers going to some science exhibition during secondary school. Walked past a device which had a body heat sensor that showed a heat picture of you, and was surprised (and embarassed) at what I saw of myself on the screen.

I then thought about hanging around nearby and watching my female classmates walk past it, but I was pure and innocent then, so didn't.

Spiderman __________I have a pair of RCA security cameras that use a tube instead of CCD's they are slightly IR. In a semi dark room they will show the viens near the skin, and outside in the dark they pick up the heat of a person or animal long before it is visable to the naked eye.

Yeah, and the hasty mod was a light sensor [Razz] . The hasty mod to stop this can be found here. I was going to mention this earlier about the cell phones - I'm sure they can fall prey to the same deal...

Never quite had the chance or inclination to try it out, though - I've only got the background information from the Internets.
