Smartphone with thermometer sensor? It is still sounds familiar because so far we have not found a smartphone that has a built-in thermometer sensor. ‘But recently a South Korean technology company called CrucialTec has launched the world’s first micro-size thermometer sensor module dedicated to smartphones.
According to the Korean Herald, this gadget is capable of measuring one’s body temperature in just 0.5 seconds using a connected app. In this case, the module uses an integrated microelectromechanical system, also called i-MEMS. ‘With this module, he is able to measure human or object temperatures between -40 and 200 degrees centigrade.
The sensor is attached to the inside of the smartphone and there is an outlet through the module on the back cover. ‘The entire setup is implemented in such a way that later the performance temperature on the smartphone will not interfere with the measurements taken to detect human temperature.
