Now, device that transforms smartphone into instant thermometer
Researchers have developed a device that turns your smartphone into an instant thermometer, that will tell you exactly what the temperature is right where you stand.
Robocat, the developers of Haze and other smartphone weather apps, created Thermodo, a small device that plugs into the headphone jack of your Android or iPhone.
Thanks to a highly-sensitive sensor inside of its minuscule housing, Thermodo can tell you the exact air temperature wherever you are, whether that's at the top of a ski slope or sweating away in the sauna afterwards, the Verge reported.
It works with an accompanying app to show instant readings and if the temperature is climbing or falling.
The Thermodo is available in two versions: a basic model in black, red, or silver that sells for 29.99 dollars, and a premium version for 44.99 dollars that offers a brushed aluminum finish with engraved logos.
