This lightweight, low cost in-ear thermometer connects directly to one's smartphone for quick and reliable temperature readings.

Using an in-ear infrared sensor, the 'Tympani Ear Thermometer' is able to take an accurate body temperature reading in only two seconds. Requiring no batteries, this tiny in-ear thermometer connects directly to one's smartphone through its headphone jack and turns the reading into an audio signal that mobile devices can recognize.

The temperature reading is then loaded onto a companion app on one's smartphone -- a platform that is able to track and monitor multiple readings over time or connect itself to other health orientated apps. Users can even email temperature readings directly to their doctor in the event of an emergency.
