I have started to learn how to use Processing to handle the PC side of the image processing. 

The hardware is the same as in pyroelectric infrared sensors project with the exception of a little playdoh around the sensor to act as a lens the rest of the changes are software changes.

Here are some screenshots of the application after doing a full sweep. Can you see me on the right and the light on the left?

Each square is 5 degrees in size. About 2 mins to capture.
from side to side it is a total of 180 degrees and 60 degrees high

2 degrees resolution. And about 5 mins to capture
