There’s a new smart thermometer coming to the market that promises to be both smart and stupid, as necessary. The Flo is a non-contact device that uses Bluetooth to send readings to a paired smartphone. On the other hand, when the phone is not around it can be used to quickly tell whether there’s a fever.
When brought near a person’s forehead, the device illuminates a small LED white, green, or red depending on whether the reading shows a chill, normal temperature, or fever respectively. Readings transferred to a smartphone can be tracked later to see how the patient was doing over time.
The developers of the device are currently raising money on Kickstarter to crowdfund its initial production run.
Here’s a promo video for the Flo non-contact thermometer:
