This non-contact thermometer reads temperatures in just one second

Get a digital reading with zero contact to avoid potential virus transmission and to make the process easier and faster for infants.

  • As states open back up, regular temperature readings may become a way of life.
  • Monitoring your temperature is an important step in recognizing illness.
  • This non-contact infrared thermometer tells temperature in just one second.

Tracking the spread of COVID-19 is challenging on many levels, especially since so many people are asymptomatic. But as states open back up, regular temperature readings act as an important component of recognizing potential sickness. In fact, the CDC recommends twice-daily temperature checks if you've recently been in areas with the virus.

We all know how important it is to wear a mask in public to reduce the risk of transmission. Touch is another means of spreading the virus, making contact impossible and temperature-reading pretty tricky. That's where this Infrared Non-Contact Digital Thermometer with 1-Sec Temperature Read, which reads body temperature quickly, without worry of potential virus transmission or upset and tired infants, comes in.

The thermometer has a large-screen HD LCD display so that you can easily see the result. Just one click and you're good to go. You can also use this thermometer in Object Mode to detect any ambient temperatures, such as a cup of tea. An automatic shutdown feature turns the thermometer off after 15 seconds of inactivity to save energy. There's even a preset alarm feature that goes off when people or objects rise above a certain temperature.

Our new reality is going to include many safety precautions; regular temperature readings may be one of them. Pick up the Infrared Non-Contact Digital Thermometer with 1-Sec Temperature Read for just $79.99 (regularly $149.99) and you'll save 46% off the list price and get ahead of the game.

    Chernobyl fungus could shield astronauts from cosmic radiation

    A recent study tested how well the fungi species Cladosporium sphaerospermum blocked cosmic radiation aboard the International Space Station.

    Surprising Science
    • Radiation is one of the biggest threats to astronauts' safety during long-term missions.
    • C. sphaerospermum is known to thrive in high-radiation environments, through a process called radiosynthesis.
    • The results of the study suggest that a thin layer of the fungus could serve as an effective shield against cosmic radiation for astronauts.
