Watch Out For Hotheads

Easy to do, and important these days. We’ve been pointing this non-contact infrared thermometers at just about every forehead we see. Reads in one second with a digital display in C or F. Measures body temps of 89.6 to 108.5 F (32.0 to 42.5 C) with a resolution of 0.18 F (0.1 C) and color changing backlit display to warn you when hot is too hot. Normal operating temperature (ambient air) range is 60.8 to 95 F (16.0 to 35.0 C), and the device should be held between 0.4" and 2" inches from those foreheads. Want to fry an egg on your car dash? Switch it over to surface mode to check, well, surface temps. Couldn’t be easier to use, or more important in times like these. Plus, when this is all over, you’ll never have to stick a thermometer under your tongue, or anywhere else, again. Approved by the FDA as soon as you add a pair of "AAA" batteries.

Scope Your Stethos!!

Stethos is Greek for chest. Indeed you can scope your stethos with this stethoscope, or your friend's or your dog's. But it works equally well for picking up any sound being transmitted through a solid medium. Listen to the air flowing through the heating ducts, the water in the pipes, the sounds of machinery, the termites munching on the floor joists!! The color does vary so we will select from what's currently available. We've had blue, teal, red, black, burgundy, green and purple, but there may be other colors yet to be seen! A great discovery device whether for biology or other pursuits. Not of professional quality, but not just a toy.
