Robocat has created a new miniature Thermodo smartphone thermometer, which has been specifically designed to be used with smartphones, and has just been launched over on the Kickstarter crowd funding website.
The new Thermodo smartphone thermometer consists of a passive temperature sensor built into a standard 4 pole audio jack encased in a robust housing, and complete with keyring carrier for when the Thermodo is not in use. Watch the video after the jump to see it in action.
Robocat explains a little more : “Thermodo sends an audio signal through the temperature sensor. This sensor will then attenuate the signal amplitude depending on the actual temperature. This attenuation can now be detected on the microphone input and through software we calculate the corresponding temperature. “
“Simply plug Thermodo into your device and start the companion app or any other Thermodo enabled apps of your choice. The temperature reading takes place instantly. Thermodo is powered by your device. No external power is required, it can even run in the background while you do important stuff.”
So if you think Thermodo is something you could benefit from, visit the Kickstarter website now to make a pledge and help Thermodo become a reality.
