Question
Dear Prof Cleggsan

Do you feel thermocouple integrated with Smartphone device hardware can help us in measuring temperature?

Thanks
Prashant

Answer
There are many smartphone variations and apps that include such features. It is not a new idea.

Medical features for measuring body temperature, blood pressure, etc. are now on the market.  Sensing devices of all kinds are being employed more and more each day.
