A new Kickstarter project Thermodo is a tiny electrical thermometer that easily plugs into your iPhone, iPod touch, iPad or any Android device’s headphone jack and accurately measures the temperature around you. Designed and produced by Robocat, Thermodo consists of a passive temperature sensor built into a standard 4 pole audio jack, that allows your mobile device to read Thermodo’s temperature straight from the audio input.
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.
Where can I use Thermodo?
You can measure the temperature indoors as well as outdoors. Track the temperature and see how it rises after you turned on the radiator or check how the temperature drops during a summer night. No network connection required. Thermodo comes with a neat little keyring so you’ll always have it with you.
Why would I want to track my temperature?
It’s incredible how much we rely on forecasts and so called “local” temperatures – the truth is that temperature values available online or through apps comes from weather stations that can easily be miles away. Nothing beats taking the measurement yourself right where you are. A small personal weather station with you at all times, how cool is that?!
The project has already raised $92,937 of its $35,000 goal with 31 days still to go. You can make a pledge for as little as $25 and reserve one for yourself in either black or white colour.
