Just curious, what applications would you use one for?

"It detects even the slightest changes in thermal signatures"

Could be useful on a date.

Smoke - Our local lowland SAR (http://www.alsar.org.uk/) use them. We've got a lot of relatively desolate marshland round here; the Dengie Hundred (http://www.dengie.org.uk/html/body_nature_index.html) (including Britain's oldest harbor, at Burnham, BTW) and Foulness Island (http://www.stosyth.gov.uk/default.asp?calltype=foulnessmar01), for example. Quite a few vulnerable people - usually kids and confused elders - go missing in the area and the police helo (http://www.es***.police.uk/about/a_dp_43.php) isn't always available or useful so we beat feet to rescue them (fortunately, very few are recoveries). Big shout to the lower-tech but at least as useful SARDA crews (http://www.nsarda.org.uk/) too, of course - all volunteers (ALSAR and SARDA both) but totally professional.

I guess people involved with youth groups (got your ears on, Thommo?) might find them useful in similar circumstances.

They're an evolution of the (relatively old now) Game Finder, whose application should be self-evident.

Just curious. I didn't think anthracitic would use one to find game, alive or dead.

These are pure junk.

Interesting assertion, Scott. Speaking from experience?
