The thermometer is a timeless medical device, but you often need to be familiar with common symptoms and what to do if you have them for it really come in handy. The Kinsa Smart Thermometer offers a new way of taking the effort out of diagnosing and dealing with everyday illness.

It’s design is straight-forward – there’s no battery, processor or display in the device itself – you just plug it into your iPhone headphone jack and the Kinsa app will display the patient’s temperature.

It can also provide treatment advice and what to watch for when it comes to more serious symptoms. If you feel your condition is that serious, the app can even call your doctor or book appointments at your local medical clinic.

In less serious circumstances, the Kinsa app can be used to access local groups to check if there are any seasonal sicknesses circulating. It’s also possible to create user profiles and keep track of your temperature over a longer period of time, perfect for those who like to keep a close eye on their health.

The Smart Thermometer is part of a larger plan to turn the general public into a front-line of defense when it comes to preventing illness. If you’re interested in getting your hands on one, all it takes is a $25 pledge on Indiegogo.
