Kinsa today has announced the launch of its Elmo Smart Ear Thermometer and companion application. The device announced today is a visual update on their original Smart Ear Thermometer sporting an Elmo themed design instead of the original blue. The Elmo Smart Ear Thermometer takes one-second readings, combines them with acknowledged symptoms from within the app, and then uses that data to create actionable next steps.

Available through the companion app, Sesame Street’s Elmo gives children empathetic words such as “feel better soon” and sympathizes with them when they aren’t feeling well.
