i(Device) Temperature probe.....
Here's thought for an industrious developer.... Someone needs to come up with a wireless temperature sensor whose data can be captured by an iDevice app. The applications (pardon the pun) can be endless. How hot is it in my car sitting in the sun out there that I have to get into/ Does the airconditioner need to be running upstairs/ What is the actual temp in the shade under the patio cover/ What is the temp in the refrigerator now (at home). If multiples of sensors could be read at the same time, all the better.
The probe has to be self powered with wireless transmission. I got the idea from a new Nike shoe probe of all places. This thing transmits to an app capturing steps per min., height jumped (of all things), and other data supposedly needed by athletes. It has a USB dongle for recharging and lasts for days.
If something you pop into your shoe can track obscure stuff like this why can't we have a probe that will tell you if its cold enough in the attic to freeze your pipes (this never tracks with the actual weather outside...trust me).
If someone knows of such a device and app, please let me know.
