Scientists at the University of Illinois have developed a high tech thermometer.

The tiny sensitive silicone device has 64 sensors and sticks to the skin.

It can measure body heat, sweating and even blood circulation near the skin’s surface.

Researchers say it can be used for study purposes - providing a more accurate way to test the body’s reaction to different physical situations.
