About five days ago, my fiancee started feeling sick. It started with the sniffles, and then developed into a full-blown hacking cough, and ended up with a late night trip to the doctors. As I write this, she’s dosed up on antibiotics, nursing a cup of tea, and curled up in bed.
Anxious that she was coming down with a fever, I’ve been closely monitoring her temperature. But I haven’t been using a traditional thermometer, which is essentially mercury in a thin glass tube.
A new era of tech events has begun
We’re back in New York this November for the 4th edition of our growth-focused technology event.
Instead, I’ve been using Flo , which is a contact-free infrared thermometer which has its own companion app.
Flo has been on our radar for a while now. We first wrote about it eight months ago , when it was still in its nascent KickStarter phase. One successful crowdfunding campaign later, and it’s an honest-to-god product you can buy online for just $50.
