Which brings me to today's topic - thermometer hand.
Yes, I realize even for me this is a weird topic, but my lovely co-worker told me the sweetest story yesterday and I had to share it with the world. When he was little and he used to get sick, his dad, like most dads, would place a hand on his head to check for his temperature. Now unlike the rest of us who understood this was an easy, but not hugely accurate, way to see if you had a fever, my co-worker believed his dad had a go-go gadget style thermometer embedded in his hand. It's so sweet, and kind of clever, and I immediately starting debating the pro's and con's of such an invention. It would mean that when you stuck your finger into coffee you'd truly know if it was too hot to drink, or if you wanted to see if the ocean was really cold you could get an exact reading. To be honest with you that's about all the uses I can think of, which gives me the feeling Apple aren't going to start working on a prototype anytime soon.
I really can't think of other uses for thermometer hand, but hey in the spirit of interactive technology why not tell me all the things you could use thermometer hand for in the comments box. - If you are wondering if this is a trick to get you to comment, then yes it is. If you aren't going to do it for me, then do it for thermometer hand.
