    I predict come January-ish.... we'll have a spike in the Pit regarding comments about how the probe worked for us. Maybe more so from those us in more climate friendly weather.

    I agree about the boards, I gambled on the external end encased in ceramic to help also cut down on the the high heat exposure.

    David Parrish I agree, thinking of doing the same. Every great invention needs investors...

    If these work they're ingenious. Truly one of those "Why didn't I think of that?" kind of ideas. I backed them for 4 probes and a meater block.

    Arrrrrgh! I caved.... got the 4 with block. 373 out of 400 in the turkey special. Better hurry before the price goes up on the next level for the same 4 with block!

    Looks a bit thinner than a pencil, so thicker than the wired probes?... yes Too thick?... I don't think so but that's just my opinion.

    I just got an email about 2 hours ago. They are now fully funded through Kickstarter - took them less than 2 days to raise $100k+.

    Yes, you'll need a 'modern' phone that can run an app. I assume they'll be like most and release apps for the Apple iOS devices and Android devices. Sadly, flip phones are probably not in-scope.

    Perhaps Bill McGrath can get his hands on one when they're available and put it through its paces for us.

    OK words from the old guy. the probe looks a little thick to me all you smart people I need help my phone is a little old ( 2 cans and a long string ) will it work for me or do you have to have a fancy phone with internet remember I am typing with 2 fingers and by the time I finish this little note it will be obsolete. I still don't know how to up load pictures on to my pc to put them on this site and with the problems I have been having with my Thermoworks probes with wires I am having trust issues. any and all help would be deeply appreciated. is Meathead going to rate this thing that would be interesting to see.

    Lost in China - I've had some good results with Kickstarter... and I've had some "meh" results. In general I enjoy the process of funding 'the little guy' who had an idea and the ambition to get out there and give it a try.

    If it was something that I would probably buy retail, I'm good with paying a little less for what might be a small gamble. I generally won't go more than $100 or so - and then it has to be something I really like. If it doesn't get funded... no harm. If it does and it's buggy - I've seen free replacement products or special deals on a v2.0 of the widget for backers, especially if it is really successful. Either way - if nobody stepped up and everyone waited for retail... it wouldn't get funded at all.

    Kickstarter? No thanks. Just wait for the retail version to come out, there's no rush. If, as I suspect, it will be full of bugs, you'll have saved yourself a lot of money and trouble. If it's not and the reviews are good, you can still buy it at retail.

    CurlingDog the thought crossed my mind that they'd have utilized something like that. Glad to hear the tech's available.
