I've never dabbled with hardware before so I'm a bit wary of buying the parts and messing it all up

There's a document here
http://pewa.panasonic.com/assets/pcsd/manuals/grid-eye/grid-eye-evalkit-reference-design.pdf
where they show how to hook it up to an arduino (including code) with an 8x8 LED grid to show the heat (low / med / high) but it's a bit basic - I'd prefer to change the 8x8 matrix from a simple 2 color one to an RGB to better represent temperatures.

I live in Florida and my electricity bill got up to $400 one month this summer so I'm quite motivated to put something together to see where all my air conditioned air is escaping to smiley

I was just wondering if anyone had looked into using the grid-eye sensor from Panasonic?

It's an 8x8 Thermal Array Sensor and is currently in stock at http://www.digikey.com

Under $40 each
