Last week I had the opportunity to catch up with Quantum RLV concerning the relatively new product from Orcam, the Orcam Read, a hand held (like a pen) device for reading text.

Checking Out the Withings Thermo Smart Temporal Thermometer

 

As the show went to air this week, I mentioned that I was expecting it in the mail to turn up soon.  As Vision Australia Vision Store has had issues tracking down a Talking Thermometer, this smart thermometer which links up to a smart phone (iPhone or Android) via the Thermo app sounded like at least an alternative solution.

 

I purchased the thermometer from the Apple Store app on my iPhone here in Australia.

 

I'll have more about this thermometer in next weeks show.

 

NB - after the show went to air, check out my quick demo of the Thermo Thermometer on my https://davidwoodbr.podbean.com iSee podcast feed.
