Aimed at parents, Flo is small Bluetooth enabled contactless thermometer that lets you track and manage health as if it were social media.

Here’s how it works: take a temperature reading, and Flow plots it on a chart for you. You can add pictures to that temperature reading, and share them to social media sites like Facebook or Twitter.
There’s also the option to take the temperature of objects (like a bottle of milk or formula), and Flo has an Apple Watch glance.
Flo itself doesn’t have a temperature readout. Instead, it relies on a color-coded system to let you know if you need to respond. White means you’ve got a chill, green means everything is okay and red means you’re running a fever.
The device comes in two colors — aquamarine and beveled glass — with strawberry and lavender available as stretch goal add-ons.
Flo is asking for $20,000 in funding, and you can get one for as little as $15. The team says most of the hard work is done, and all that’s left is the manufacturing and distribution.
You never know what may happen in crowdfunding, but Flo is currently scheduled to ship as early as April of this year.
