Being able to detect when a child’s temperature rises above 37°C would be a welcome ability for worried parents. The same could be said about doctors on professional sport teams. A British inventor seems to have developed a fabric that loses its color and turns white above the standard temperature threshold.
From the Daily Mail:
Mr Ebejer, who had his idea while watching a documentary about babies, began the search for an ink pigment with heat-sensitive molecules.
He spent six years and £700,000 working with scientists to develop-the pigments to embed into cotton babygrows.
The blue Babyglow suit for boys turns white when the child’s temperature rises too much
The blue Babyglow suit for boys turns white when the child’s temperature rises too much. The Babyglows come in pink, blue and pastel green, all of which turn white as soon as the baby’s temperature rises above 37c. They will be available from October for £20 a pack.
The worldwide patent has been bought by manufacturers Quality Workwear 4 U, in Milton Keynes.
