NeuroTermoUSB is a pen-drive sized Temperature sensor, interfaced via USB with a personal computer.
The peculiarity of this sensor is it’s cost: it has been built in our laboratory with dicrete components for a total cost which is about 3.5€ and it is supposed that a large scale of production can lower the price down to less than 2.5€.
The driving software has been written in Java 7, with the usage of only opensource technologies. This allows the system to run on all major operating system with mininum effort for porting and bug resolution.
The interface is kept clean and minimal to result a very light load for the host system.
