Wishbone Is Small And Smart In Taking Your Child’s Body Temperature
A small thermometer, called Wishbone, has been designed which is capable of taking a child’s body temperature quickly and readily.
When you get ill, you visit your doctor who examines your body with different devices. One of such important instruments is thermometer which is used to measure your body temperature. But what happens when a cute baby feels sick? He can’t tell us what is going on inside his body. He doesn’t allow us to measure his temperature smoothly. He cries and makes it a tough task to measure his body temperature. But the task has been made easier by father of one of such a child.
A baby product store owner and dad has designed a small thermometer which allows to take child’s body temperature without causing any discomfort to little sweet infant. The thermometer is so smart that it can not only take readings of body temperature, but also of any object or the environment temperature, writes the the project’s developers on Kickstarter.
Shenzhen, China-based Joywing Tech founders Harry Hu and Robin Gong, have developed Wishbone. They realized that the conventional thermometers can not be used conveniently; parents as well as the doctors had to struggle hard in order to take baby’s temperature measurement. Thus they came up with the idea of Wishbone.
Wishbone is indeed one of the smartest thermometer with smaller size, quicker readings and additional functions. Y-shaped, molded at an angle of 45-degree, Wishbone is compatible to Android or iOS smartphone’s headphone jack. At the one end of the device an infrared sensor is installed while on the other, battery is integrated.
Wishbone is easy to use: the sensor needs to be placed three to five centimeters away from the child’s head for merely a couple of seconds. Once the temperature is detected, Wishbone’s companion app records it.
The app running on the smartphone also comes with a data feature to keep track of the individuals’ data records. According to the creators of this smart thermometer:
“Temperature data can be even more useful when compared to past records. That’s why we added the function to create profiles for individuals to separate and track each person’s data. Using historical data, parents and couples can create charts to help them understand their situations and make better decisions.”
The project has been a massive success for the developers. They have raised more than $150,000 which is far greater than their pledge of $20,000 goal.
