Check your temperature with a mirror

Posted in Health by Conner Flynn on January 17th, 2011

NEC Avio Infrared Technologies have just released a new thermometer that can tell your temperature without you even having to touch it. No more sticking a thermometer into your mouth. The Thermo Mirror SX-01 will easily spot people who have a fever. As an example, if an office is worried about the spread of flu in the building, this device can quickly and easily check the temperature of a person before they enter the building. If they have a high temperature, they may not be allowed in, thus keeping the office healthier.

Just look into the mirror, and it will automatically measure the person’s temperature using infrared thermography. The Thermo Mirror will cost about $1,200.

Meat smoker texts you when your meat is done

Posted in DIY by Conner Flynn on September 2nd, 2010

This DIY meat smoker is a must make. Real men need meat. And they need to know when it is done. Simple as that. And so this meat smoker will alert you via a text message whenever your meat is ready. Peter Rauch decided to use a proportional-integral-differential (PID) controller which can modulate electrical power to a heating element.

It even has a touchscreen display that allows you to adjust the controller, while a J-type thermocouple located in the top of the smoker delivers a voltage signal for the feedback loop to control the temperature. When you combine meat with tech, the results are delicious.

Video Game controller turns hot and cold

Posted in Controllers by Conner Flynn on August 3rd, 2010

Imagine yourself in an arctic level in a game and your controller gets cold. Or maybe it heats up while you travel a desert level. Temperature could really put you more in the game.

An experimental new video game controller was just revealed at this week’s SIGGRAPH conference that includes a pair of thermoelectric panels on each side of the controller. Those surfaces heat or cool rapidly in reaction to what’s happening in the game.

It even has a digital readout to show you exactly what temp it is. I don’t know about you, but when I wash my hands or take a shower, I don’t put that much thought into it. You know when it feels warm enough after all. Do we really need to be so anal about water temp? Apparently so.

The X-Touch is a product of Newform Italy, and appears to be a sink faucet or a bath faucet. Either way, obsessive compulsives will love it as they can gauge when it is exactly the right temp.
