Wearable Thermometer

Banana Thermometer

Back

This patch-type thermometer is attached to the armpit. It looks like a banana, a fruit loved by children of all ages. In addition, the design pays homage to the old tradition of lowering a fever with banana leaves. The thermometer keeps measuring the baby’s temperature without missing a minute. The measurements are displayed on a smartphone via Bluetooth connection. The corresponding app has useful features like an alarm function.
