Porter Cable Infrared Thermometer

If you ever find yourself doubting human progress, consider the fact that in just the span of a few decades, we’ve gone from using rectal thermometers to the Porter Cable Infrared Thermometer. Not only does this device bypass any unpleasant anal insertion, it doesn’t even require touching anything at all, let alone a dainty bum. Just point it at your wall or window and take non-contact surface temperature measurements to show energy leaks or hot spots. Its LEDs change color to show temperature differences – blue shows spots cooler and red shows spots warmer than the reference temperature by more than the threshold.  Also unlike rectal thermometers, the Porter Cable Infrared accurately measures temperatures from -22 degrees Farenheit to 590. That’s progress.
