No there is no easy way to make a FLIR camera from a webcam.

If there were then FLIR cameras wouldn't cost $2000.

Only 2000 USD ? Best I've seen on this side of the pond amount to 2500 +

Don't know how well it would image though.
80 x 80 . Not exactly HD :-)

My offering is the same unit in a different box. And a different price.
Correction: nearly 3200 !

Thanks, I think that is the software that make the differece, cause if you can see IR light, you just need make a scale for the diferent temperatures/brightness on the camera
No, its all to do with the acceptable wavelength of the IR detector,. Software makes ZERO difference.

.  FLIR and night-vision IR use different wavelengths, so, no, you can't make a FLIR cam out of a webcam. :(

This is not a FLIR camera, but it might be like what you meant?
