Blue Spark Technologies, Inc. is the leader in developing flexible, printed, "green," proprietary power source solutions for battery-powered printed electronic systems.
At the last CES exhibit - a global consumer electronics and consumer technology tradeshow that takes place every January in Las Vegas, Nevada, the company showed off a wireless thermometer patch aimed at parents looking to keep a close eye on their children's fevers. It's now available for purchase for $25 a piece directly from the manufacturer.
The TempTraq has a thermometer and a bluetooth transmitter built-in that shares the readings continuously with a paired smartphone. The patch works for a full 24 hour period, comfortably stuck under the arm of even small children.
The accompanying app tracks the temp readings, letting you know how the night went and whether fever reducers worked as expected.
The patch is single use, but you can use a number of them if you have more than one child to track everyone's temperature with the single installation of the app.
