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.

Kalt turns your iPhone into a precise, non-contact thermometer

Robogaia Industries is using Kickstarter to seek funding for a product called Kalt, an infrared sensor that plugs into an iPhone’s headphone jack and turns the smartphone into a precise, non-contact thermometer. The Cleveland-based company is looking to raise $10,000 over the next three weeks to cover development and manufacturing costs.

The palm-sized Kalt sensor reads the infrared energy that an object omits and converts it into readable temperatures in Fahrenheit, Celsius or Kelvin. Simply point Kalt towards the object and it will automatically show the temperature on the companion app for iOS and Android. The sensor is powered by the device it is plugged into and requires no batteries.
