A Kickstarter campaign has begun to commercially market The Wishbone, an infrared thermometer that can be synced with your smartphone. Infrared thermometers are ideal for f homes where multiple people use the same thermometer because they do not require any contact with human skin; users can simply hold the thermometer near the forehead and the device is able to give an accurate temperature reading. While infrared thermometers have been around for some time, The Wishbone is unique because it syncs with a smartphone app (either iOS or Android) and allows you to log the data over time. Additionally, you can share readings with a health care provider. The device is pocket-sized and requires a low energy battery that can last a little over a year.
