Oral Data: Minimum- 95.0 Maximum- 99.0 Median- 97.7 Mean- 97.5324242 Standard Deviation- .84480004
Sensor Data: Minimum-88.8 Maximum-98.2 Median- 95.3 Mean- 95.0818182 Standard Deviation- 1.84918524
Our experiment results showed that the oral thermometer was more accurate than the external sensor because of the lower standard deviation. The external sensors however still produced decent readings and would be a more convenient way to measure someone's temperature. Possible sources of error would be the placement of the external sensor because during the experiment, it would move and slide around which may have skewed the data and given a less reliable reading. Also, the phone lost connection with the sensor repeatedly and the phone tried to connect with other sensors that were in close range. This product can be improved by having a stronger signal connection and a sleeve that someone can wear so that the sensor does not move and stays properly positioned to give accurate temperature readings.

Target Population and Need
Wii and Xbox Kinect users. Our monitor will allow interactive gamers the ability to observe real time internal body temperature. During intense active gaming, users are often unaware of extreme flucuations in internal body temperature. This device will not only monitor real time temperature in gamers, but also give warnings through the connected gaming system when interal body temperature is too high. If internal body temperature is too high, the gaming system will automatically shut down.
