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.

Planet Nine will be discovered in the next decade. Here’s why.

The planet that we are searching for is a little bit smaller and closer than we originally thought.

  • Years ago, California Institute of Technology professor Konstantin Batygin was inspired to embark on a journey of discovering what lurked beyond Neptune. What he and his collaborator discovered was a strange field of debris.
  • This field of debris exhibited a clustering of orbits, and something was keeping these orbits confined. The only plausible source would be the gravitational pull of an extra planet—Planet Nine.
  • While Planet Nine hasn't been found directly, the pieces of the puzzle are coming together. And Batygin is confident we'll return to a nine-planet solar system within the next decade.
