NEC mirror will take your temperature without touching you

Mirror, mirror on the wall, who's the hottest of them all

| Health Technology News | Posted: Jan 20, 2011 6:10 pm

Anyone that has kids knows that you have to sit on them a lot of the time if you need to check their temperature. I know my kids don't want to sit still that long and even when they do they end up talking and it takes twice as long as it should to see if they have a fever or not. NEC has unveiled a new mirror that parents will really like called the Thermo Mirror.

The device is a normal mirror that you can look at to see your reflection. It also has tech inside that shoots uses an IR sensor to check how hot you are. If it detects a fever, the mirror will sound an alarm. The other big upside to this design is that you won't have to cram a thermometer up an infant's bum and there will be no cross contamination between users.

 

The big downside to the tech at this point is that the thing is very expensive. Two versions are offered in Japan with one selling for $1200 and the other selling for $1460. The difference between the two is unknown and apparently, they aren't shipping outside of Japan at this point.
