If you’ve ever wanted to know how hot your Xbox 360 CPU was running (or if your beer is too warm to drink,) this nifty gadget will let you know.

Spark Industries MicroTemp MT100

The $24.95 MicroTemp MT100 Keychain Thermometer from Spark Industries uses an infrared sensor to tell you the temperature of any item you point it at. It can measure temperatures from a frigid -27°F (-33°C) to a burn-inducing 230°F (+110°C), all without ever touching the surface of the item you aim it at. The read area for the sensor is about 1:1 (so if you hold it about an inch away from a surface, you’ll get the temperature for a 1-inch area.

Maybe McDonalds should include one of these with every cup of coffee, just so nobody ever sues them over leg burns again.
