Ok, Whos gonna be first to FPV this? (Seek Thermal)

http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,2817,2469853,00.asp

Saw this and got really excited for the future.
Thermal has dropped in cost enough for me to ponder picking up one of these gadgets.

Who can figure out how to get it FPV able so I can do SAR with my quad.

We need a little better resolution but just think where this will be in a year from now.
$200-$250 and you have an actual FLIR system....incredible

I think the 206x156 resolution delivered by seek thermal is awesome at 200$. Consider i) this is thermal imaging so it is not directly comparable to regular fpv cams and ii) use it as an accessory camera with the sensor mounted next to your regular fpv cam.

The question is: With the device originally designed to record footage to an android device, how can we get it to output live video for FPV ?
A development kit was announced so maybe a raspberry pi 2 or beaglebone black could be used to get there.
