There are several ways of getting regular weather updates, like checking out the news or through weather apps. Sometimes though, the weather forecast from these sources may not exactly be as accurate as you’d like.

Denmark-based software studio Robocat has developed a device that gives users a more precise weather update in real time.

Thermodo is a tiny electrical thermometer built for iOS and Android devices. The small device has a temperature sensor that is built into a 4-pole audio jack. The device, which is small enough to carry around on a keychain ring, plugs into a smartphone headphone jack and uses high pressure sensitivity to inform the user of the temperature of their current environment, wherever they may be. The user can check out the current temperature by launching the accompanying app.

Owners can also use 4-pole audio extension cable to get Thermodo away from the device they’re using. Putting a little bit of distance between Thermodo and the device actually has some benefits, including getting the tiny thermometer away from common sources of heat – in this case, the user and the device itself – that may affect the measurement. To get an exact reading, users may need to leave the thermometer uninterrupted in the environment for a few minutes before taking a measurement.

Thermodo and the app works with the iPhone, iPad, and a wide range of Android devices. The app currently supports systems using Android 4.0.3 Ice Cream Sandwich and above. The team behind Thermodo is continuously working on making the device and app available for more devices.


The tiny thermometer was successfully funded on Kickstarter in March last year, with the campaign reaching 960% of its goal. Thermodo is now fully functional and available to ship.

Thermodo is available in two editions, the Black and Premium editions. The Black Edition is made of aluminum in midnight automotive grade paint, comes with a hand-stamped logo, and is priced at $30 plus shipping. The Premium Edition is made of anodized aluminum, comes with an electrode erosion engraved logo, and is priced at $50 plus shipping.

The video below was released during the Kickstarter campaign.
