Michael and Ibrahim, you guys are so close already, you're doing awesome!
I know a few other people are excited about thermal imaging, and have been asking about the 16x4 shields. I've posted a video showing the HTPA82x62 thermal diode sensor with OMV1 at http://youtu.be/vsgGOg__wRo
. We couldn't run it in python without changing the py_spi code (HTPA SPI uses a 16-bit interface) but making new python modules is very straightforward, plus we wanted to keep it faster. We've made python modules for a 1.8" LCD (compiled for speed, the Sainsmart 1.8"), Lepton and the HTPA. Pretty soon you'll be able to build your own!
