Here’s an novel concept design of a thermometer that won’t make taking temperature feels like someone is pointing a gun to your head.
Designed by Denmark-based graphic artist/industrial designer Mads Hindhede Svanegaard is the Thermometer v3, a contact thermometer which, presumably, takes temperature off a person’s forehead. Like, where else could it be, right?
For hygiene purpose, this Y-shaped Thermometer v3 (that looks like a truncated slingshot.. just saying) features a replaceable silicone cap. The biggest leap – if we can describe it as so – however, is perhaps the UI.
Regular thermometer of any grade only puts out numbers, but with Mads’ proposed designed, the resulting temperature is accompanied by a facial icon to indicator the status.
For examples, if the temperature is well within the normal temperature range, it has a smiley face with blue stripes on the forehead while a person who register a higher than normal temperature of say, 39.2 degrees Celsius (102.6 Fahrenheit), a graphic of a sad face accompanied with yellow/orange/red lines on the forehead conveys that the person is having fever.
It kind of makes thermometer a little more fun, though we really shouldn’t be in a stage where taking temperature is an everyday routine.
