Accuracy of +/- 2 but I'd be interested in seeing some real world tests of that. We all know design specs don't always match up with real world realities.

Pretty cool though in any case.

I wouldn't trust it either. I have a laser thermometer gun that I had to pay 70 dollars to get a certificate of calibration. It is supposed to be accurate within 1/10th of a degree, but it is not, and it requires you to point the laser at the surface you want to check. I can't imagine something like this little gadget being more accurate than that 270 dollar laser device.

I guess I'd have to see it to believe it.

ever since i worked in a grocery store i wanted one. but the cost was prohibitive. this would be fun, for anything but cpu temp monitoring. there are plenty of other applications for it though!
