CES 2015: BonBonBear is the world’s first graphene thermometer

It’s clearly the time for smart temperature-taking tech for children at this year’s CES. Not to be outdone by VivaLnk’s teddy-themed eSkin Thermometer, which has an embedded NFC chip, Linktop Technology is debuting the BonBonBear.

The China-based wearables company has developed what it says is the world’s first cloud thermometer to be made from graphene, the super strong and incredibly flexible material that’s great at conducting heat and electricity and can even ‘see’ through walls. The thermometer’s a small sticker that won’t leave behind stickiness or residue and which can get an accurate reading within seconds or monitor a child’s heath over the course of 24 hours.

There’s an accompanying app for iOS and Android and the temperature data the sensor collects is automatically uploaded to the cloud, where it can be stored or shared with family members (or perhaps medical professionals).

It’s in limited release at the moment, priced at $59 (£39), but there’s no word yet on when it’ll go on sale in the UK. For more information, check out the website.
