    They will be making one for Androids later on in 2014 after the I-Phone 5 model is released for less than $350 using the new FLIR Lepton core which has a sensitivity ability to detect temperature differences as small as 0.18 F (0.1C) :

    So why are weapon mounted IR devices so expensive again?

    Yep.

    If FLIR makes an IR device for $350... add maybe another $350 for a bigger housing with rail interface and battery compartment for a AA or CR-123 or something, and they wouldn't be able to make them fast enough. Currently IR (thermal) optics are in the $10k price range!

    I'm sure the glass has something to do with it. Same difference between a smart phone camera (fraction of $600 price) and a decent DSLR (thousands). Throw in fine adjustments required for shooting optics, etc and I can see why they're 30x the price.

    The lens is made out of pure elemental germanium, (which is a rare earth element) since glass does NOT pass long wave IR.

    Germanium is 1/2+ the cost of a thermal weapon scope.
