A Japanese technology firm on Tuesday unveiled a mirror-like thermometer that can identify a person who is feverish.
"Thermo Mirror," which looks like a table mirror, measures the skin temperature of the person looking into it, without the need for physical contact, said the firm, NEC Avio Infrared Technologies.
The person's temperature is displayed on the surface, and the device has an alarm that will beep when detecting a subject who is feverish.
"We foresee uses at corporate receptions, schools, hospitals and public facilities," NEC Avio said in a statement.
The company said it aimed to sell 5,000 units in one year.
