I take my phone pretty much everywhere, but it’s true that there is a lot more that it could do, given the right add-ons. Check out the Kinsa accessory, which will not only take your temperature but may also be able to diagnose what’s wrong with you or your kids.
Kinsa is a low-cost thermometer that attaches to your iPhone via the headphone jack. It’s able to record your temperature history, and you can also input your symptoms. The Kinsa app taps into a database to see what kinds of illnesses are going around your local area. If there is a cold outbreak, then it’s possible that other people are suffering from it to. This is by no means a certain diagnosis, and it doesn’t replace a doctor, but it’s an interesting idea. And of course, it only works if there are other users in the area using Kinsa.
Kinsa is not yet available for purchase, but it will be available soon. You can hit up the Kinsa website to be notified of its release.
