Those puppies are in the mid-four figures.  People who do home or business 
"energy audits" have access to them.  Time to cultivate some friendships!  

(On the other hand, the new BLUR cameras (Backwards Looking Ultra Red) are 
about the same price and would allow us to look retrospectively at our previous 
attempts and collect new data from old tests..!)

Sounds like you need FLIR for this project...

I think removing the internal IR filter works with most webcams, and if you 
want to make sure you ONLY see the infrared but not the visible part of the 
spectrum, you can add a filter that only lets infrared light pass. A piece of 
overexposed and developed color negative film (like from the beginning of a 
film roll) works quite well for that purpose. It blocks nearly all visible 
light and is quite transparent for IR. If you know someone who still shoots 
pictures on film or someone who did so in the past and kept the negatives, they 
should be able to find a suitable piece of material.
Not sure how you want to use the IR camera, but you should be aware that it 
will not be a thermal imaging device. It will be sensitive only to near 
infrared, and in order to emit those wavelengths a body must be quite hot 
already, i.e. close to glowing.
I have a few unused webcams at home and will check if they can be converted.
Have a great day!

Does anyone know and is willing to turn a webcam into a webcam with infrared 
vision for the series of motors VIC and to study the ablative materials?
