Originating in Shanghai, this latest installment in a host of emerging smart thermometer apps recently completed a successful funding campaign on Kickstarter. The innovative system is small and bills itself as the most accurate in the world.

Monitoring a patient's temperature consistently and precisely, the iDo smart thermometer app connects to an individual's smartphone through the application of chip-embedded disposable patches. The patches are applied underneath a patient's armpit. The user then opens the iDo Smart iPhone app and connects with iDo by Bluetooth. The app-powered system will then begin taking the patient's temperature every few seconds.

An interesting component of the iDo system's business model is its open-course software development kit that allows developers to build their own iDo integration into their products.
