Thermodo is a tiny electrical thermometer that measures the temperature right where you are on a smartphone, such as an iPhone, iPad, Android & others. It comes in a tiny protective case and plugs right into the audio output connection on a smartphone , e.g iPhone or Android.
Its initial funding was in-house by Robocat, but the interest generated caused the developers to go to KickStarter.com to raise funds to help start volume production. it has been a very successful fundraiser and this page is intended to follow the growth of the many proposed applications and product variations developed over time.
BTW, we are backers (of course!) and noticed that as of , April 7, 2013, the project on Kickstarter.com is 901% funded.
They are building a free Thermodo companion app for iOS and Android, but Thermodo already works with their own paid apps, (typically $2.99 USD in the Apple App store):
- Thermo is a simple approach to Weather. This little pocket thermometer shows the current temperature outside along with the temperature from the day before. More than 2 million have been already downloaded!
- Haze gives you a radiantly crafted Weather forecast at a glance. Swipe through temperature, sunshine hours and rain chance or dive even deeper and get detailed information about the weather. Swipe down to get a 5 day forecasts and unlock multiple colorful themes to personalize the look.
Once you get your own Thermodo, there will be plenty of things to do with it.
They’re making an open source software developer kit (SDK) available to anyone who wants to build their own Thermodo integration into their products.
Look for more…possibly even an Windows Phone app.
