Touch / Thermometer


Nowadays, most conventional thermometers on the market rely on cold machines to directly touch people's bodies for temperature measurement, which makes us deeply disgusted. Touch is a new type of thermometer. It is designed based on a habit. When we have a fever or feel uncomfortable, our parents will naturally touch our foreheads with the palm of our hands. This behavior not only makes us feel the carness from our mother, but also relieves the pain when we are sick. Touch can be worn on the palm of the hand, it is more convenient to use than conventional thermometers, and contains more parental emotions.
