Thermodo Thermometer Plugs Into Your iPhone's Headphone Jack [Kickstarter]
Thermodo is a tiny electrical thermometer for your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch that's seeking funding on Kickstarter. The thermometer plugs into the headphone jack on your device and interfaces with a companion app to display the temperature.
Thermodo consists of a passive temperature sensor built into a standard 4 pole audio jack enclosed by a sturdy housing. This allows your mobile device to read Thermodo's temperature straight from the audio input. Thermodo sends an audio signal through the temperature sensor. This sensor will then attenuate the signal amplitude depending on the actual temperature. This attenuation can now be detected on the microphone input and through software we calculate the corresponding temperature. Easy peasy! We call this the Thermodo Principle™. Simply plug Thermodo into your device and start the companion app or any other Thermodo enabled apps of your choice. The temperature reading takes place instantly. Thermodo is powered by your device. No external power is required, it can even run in the background while you do important stuff.
A pledge of $25 will get you a Thermodo in white or black plastic. A pledge of $39 will get you an anodized aluminum edition. The project has already reached $92,937 pledged of its $35,000 goal.
