What if you could check your temperature and get a blood test at home? Introducing OZE by Anshuman Kumar. This handheld device uses infrared technologies to measure temperature and uses a micro LED display to show that information, along with air quality as well as weather. How do infrared thermometers work? The use a lens to focus infrared light from one object onto a detector called a thermopile, which then absorbs the infrared radiation and turns it into heat. This electricity is sent to a detector, which uses it to determine the temperature of whatever it’s pointed at.
