CONNECT / Thermometer


CONNECT allows parents to accurately take their child’s temperature in the affectionate way they normally would: by placing a hand on the child’s forehead. Using existing temporal scanning technology, a parent simply picks up the device, presses the start button, and swipes their child’s forehead. When a parent affectionately uses their hand to feel if their child has a fever, a connection is created — CONNECT preserves this connection while adding necessary accuracy. CONNECT improves the process of obtaining temperature readings by comforting kids without sacrificing the accuracy parents need.
