CROWDFUNDING NEWS – Taking temperatures is all the rage these days, but carrying an instant-read thermometer isn’t very practical. They’re big, bulky, and who knows when the battery will die?
Enter ThermGo, a tiny infrared thermometer that connects to your smartphone or tablet.
ThermGo offers several advantages over bulky instant-read thermometers.
ThermGo is tiny at only 70mm/2.75″ long and 16g/0.5oz. It can slip right into a pocket or purse.
Unlike more traditional instant-read thermometers, ThermGo needs no batteries, tracks all historical readings, is small and portable, and because it is totally non-contact, is sanitary.
ThermGo will ship with a USB-C connector, Lightning adapter for Apple devices, micro-USB adapter, and a user manual. An optional USB-C extension cable is available for off-device use.
Apps will be available for Android and iOS devices.
Here’s a video of ThermGo in action.
ThermGo is a Kickstarter campaign. They have absolutely destroyed their funding goal of $3,000 with $77,152 pledged as of this writing. The campaign runs until Sunday, January 31, 2021, at 10:36 AM EST. Rewards start at $29 for a single ThermGo with small breaks for multiple units.
