Taking the temperature of a sick child can be a tricky process, so the conceptual 'Ear Fun' thermometer has been designed to make things a little easier for parents or caregivers. The thermometer can be used for recording multiple different audio snippets for children to listen to as the device takes readings from their ear. This could be used by parents to pique a child's curiosity and get them excited to have their temperature taken instead of it being an unwanted albeit necessary healthcare practice when ill.
The conceptual 'Ear Fun' thermometer is the design work of Eunseo Kwak and Teasoo Moon, and could work to transform the childcare experience for parents. The device is also integrated with tracking technology that will keep record of the last 10 readings and can even relay data to your smartphone, if desired.
