This scarf with a built-in thermometer seems kind of superfluous. I mean, you already know it’s cold outside. That’s why you are wearing the scarf in the first place. Still, it’s pretty cool that your scarf can tell you the exact temperature.
When my son was an infant, he had constant ear infections, and we had to check his temperature roughly every 15 seconds or we felt like terrible parents and were convinced he had brain damage. The problem was he was also the lightest sleeper in the history of babies and would wake up at the sound me turning the thermometer on.
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.
For those of us in the Northern Hemisphere, fall is upon us. The leaves are already changing colors here in Chicago, a constant reminder that winter is coming. These special paper leaves are designed to work as thermometers, providing a vague sense of the weather by changing colors.
Taking care of a child isn’t easy, nor is it rocket science. You’ve just got to strike a balance with how you treat them, so you can deal with them in a way that will get them to respect you but not fear you.
If you read Technabob very much, you know how we feel about DIY gadgetry around here. If you have a cool DIY project that uses in Arduino controller, you’re probably going to catch our eye. I know Robb Godshaw has certainly caught my attention with his cool invention.
My sister’s youngest daughter got sick over the weekend while she was sleeping over at my place, and let me just say, it was as close to hell heck as I’ve ever been. (I’ve been choosing my words carefully while she was under my care, under strict instructions by my sister.)
Wall clocks are a dime a dozen, but there’s something quite appealing about this one. It’s the Giant Digital Atomic Wall Clock and Thermometer, and it’s basically one of the smaller ones that has been made a lot bigger so that you can read it from clear across your room.
I recently got a new puppy (I named her Remy Martin, but of course I’m not going to let her grow up to be an alcoholic, no sirrie!) and I just adore my little furball.
I rarely leave her at home alone, given that she’s still 8 weeks-old and all, but sometimes, there’s just no one left at home to care for the little tyke.
I couldn’t make this stuff up. Filling a niche that I’m pretty sure nobody needs filled, this weird alarm clock from China is definitely not something I had on my gadget wish list.
This cat-shaped alarm clock, and not only tells the time, but releases an unknown fragrance as it does its business.
Brando, sellers of some of the weirdest stuff I have ever seen in my life, are cutting back on absurdity with their latest gadgets. For example, their USB hub is functional and versatile. But still a bit weird.
When not telling time, these clever clocks look like a triangular hunk of wood. But switch them on, and a bright red 7-segment LED display hidden behind the thin wood veneer reveals the current time.
These aren’t the first clocks I’ve seen that pull off this illusion, but what makes these ones unique is their stylish angular face design, which makes them easy to read whether standing up or sitting down.
From weather websites to the morning news to your mobile phone – there are hundreds, if not thousands of different ways to find out your local weather. But there’s something about this tabletop weather station that would have me checking it first.
If you spent way too many hours of your childhood trying to solve that infuriating Rubik’s Cube, now you can have a constant reminder of your frustration every single morning when you wake up.
This Rubik’s-inspired clock takes the basic design concept of the classic cube puzzler, and turns it into an LCD digital alarm clock.
These digital alarm clocks from Oregon Scientific offer up a bold modern design that’s sure to look great on your bedside table.
Featuring a striking black and white case with a futuristic, bright orange-on-black display, there’s no way you’ll miss one of these clocks when you roll over in the middle of the night to check the time.
