April showers may bring May flowers, but those seemingly innocent little rains can also pack a stone-cold punch more suited for grizzled boxers than garden parties, not to mention more sniffles than you can shake a budding stick at.
Debugging as the season's change can be as tiring as the family's annual spring cleaning fest, particularly with everything cold and flu slowing down kids and adults alike. But, as they say, there's always a silver lining to that storm cloud, which in this case, comes in the form of the TemporalScanner Thermometer. The handy-dandy device is a totally non-invasive, completely child-friendly (read: painless) system that not only touts advanced infrared technology and patented software, but every parent's favorite feature: speed.
With one quick, simple stroke across the forehead, the sensor in the TemporalScanner Thermometer's probe scans the surface of the temporal artery like a video camera, capturing naturally emitted infrared heat from the body's blood supply, while at the same time, scanning ambient artery temperature to come up with a combined overall body temperature reading, all in a matter of seconds.
It’s better than keeping a toilet roll-sized wad of Kleenex tucked up your sleeve till summer.
