"FLIR showed me a new add-on to an iPhone 5 that provides the company's incredible thermal-imaging through a cell-phone app. It uses a two-camera system to make the thermal image a bit more usable: For example you can read text on it, which thermal imagery usually wouldn't allow, so you could see the name on the transom of a boat through darkness or fog. Or get a photo of someone's nametag up close." — Editor-in-Chief Jason Wood
To showcase its Prestige line of motoryachts and express cruisers, French boatbuilder Jeanneau welcomes select guests to its impressive factory in Les Herbiers in western France. Prospective boat buyers, dealers, and a few lucky journalists got a glimpse of the entire boatbuilding process from the design and engineering studios to the yard where the boats are loaded for truck delivery. Oh and there was a really nice lunch with a little champagne as well!
