Coming next week we have a new infrared temperature sensor that works very nicely with Arduino. Check it out here:

Plus we have a getting-started guide that answers many questions:

If I wanted to use this as a human detection sensor, what would be the maximum range that I could expect to detect a human?

inspiring, could be a nice scanning device
+ make bundle smaller (mechanically)
+ put it on a pan tilt system and scan pixel for pixel ..

From the photo posted on their website it seems to be 10 cm.

Flx, I see the picture you are referring to, but I'm not sure that it depicts the max range. It may be depicting the FOV at that distance. Hopefully it's more than 10cm, but you're probably right.
