I don't know if this is the right place, but there is an iPhone app that uses black body radiation to measure temperature. Anyone who is into forging, or working with superheated ceramics would probably find this useful. It is called Thermal Light.

According to the "support page" http://houseofficer.com/forgingtemperature/ it does NOT use black body radiation, it just measures the color of the image.

It might be a neat toy, but I think you would be a fool to use it for anything serious, even if http://appshopper.com/utilities/thermal-light claims it "has been calibrated against a certified IR thermometer."
