Weather apps are a dime a dozen on both Android and iOS but the information they give out is mostly useful for those outside. When you want to know about the conditions of your home or your room, you're mostly out of luck, at least until now.

Seeing an overabundance of iPhone cases at CES comes with little in terms of surprise. But even with that being said, this year does have a few rather interesting models. We recently mentioned the stun gun case from Yellow Jacket and now we are taking a look at one with a thermal camera. The case is called the FLIR ONE.
Yellow Jacket is here at CES 2014 showing their latest stun case for the iPhone 5/5S. Their previous iPhone case was for the 4. Specific iPhone models aside though, what we have here is a case with a built-in stun gun that is capable of delivering 18,000 volts. Naturally, this sort of device just had to be seen in person.
