With the outbreak of COVID-19, the demand for daily temperature measurement is increasing rapidly. In this environment, every temperature measurement seems to be a trial. However, thermometer's poor design once again aggravates this anxiety, and we need to change it. We try to think about the existence of thermometers with simplified thinking, achieve the cordial and gentle product feeling we want to show people through continuous deduction of the shape, and try to make the whole temperature measurement process easy and fast. During the constant simulation of the actual temperature measurement scene, we realized a subconscious psychological action of the tested person-" glancing at the temperature of the display screen on the thermometer, a feeling of wanting to know your current body temperature". Therefore, we want to eliminate some anxiety in the process of temperature measurement by shifting the focus of the testee, and minimize the anxiety caused by paying more attention to the thermometer by amplifying the testee's attention to temperature. Among them, we use the principle of convex lens imaging to project the temperature number displayed by LED on the arm.
