Don’t mistake it for a mobile phone decoration or headphone audio splitter — this Y-shaped device by Lamch & Co is actually a thermometer. Aptly named Wishbone, it’s a non-contact thermometer that works with your smartphone to detect object, body and ambient temperatures in under two seconds, and boasts quite an impressive accuracy of within ±0.2 deg C when measuring body temperature and within ±1 deg C in object mode.
Coupled with the user-friendly Wishbone app that can be downloaded from the App Store or Google Play, this quirky device is easy to operate and the only smart thermometer that is compatible with both Android and iOS platforms.
Through its app, Wishbone can store historical data, which can be viewed at a later date for analysis and reference. This feature is particularly helpful for parents monitoring their baby’s recovery from illness and for ladies who need to track their body temperature to identify ovulation periods.
There’s even a function for creating individual profiles to separate and track each person’s data, which means there’s no mistaking someone else’s temperature for your own. It’s definitely a great tech get for mothers and mothers-to-be.
