For those who have always wondered how plants grow, how efficiently they’re growing and how healthy the plants truly are, Public Lab has created affordable infrared cameras that allows anyone to capture infrared images of plant life with ‘Infagram.’

These affordable infrared cameras allow the user to take pictures of plants, trees, farms, wetlands and gardens and examine how healthy their plants are. ‘Infagram’ encourages learning about the active growth of plant life by penetrating the red pigment produced in plants through photosynthesis. ‘Infagram’ then produces two pictures, an infrared-based one and a regular one. If there are a lot of bright spaces along the plants in the infrared-based picture, it means the plants have a lot of photosynthesis and are healthy. For farmers and gardeners alike, ‘Infagram’ will help them to keep track of their plants health without disturbing the plants.

A great way to merge photography and science, ‘Infagram’ is the one of most affordable infrared cameras on the market to date.
