Temperature Data Relay
After seeing how uncomfortable an elderly relative was in hospital when they kept having to have their temperature taken, James was driven to come up with a solution.
My invention is designed to eliminate the discomfort of frequently having your temperature taken by automatically measuring temperature and relaying data to a computer through a serial port. The hardest part was integrating all of the parts into a box and having it work successfully - so it was pretty rewarding when I got it all finished!
In my spare time I enjoy cracking things open and playing around with anything I can get my hands on and I am pretty interested in web development too.
