Al Roker, can you help with product development?
I would like to propose the development of a thermometer with voice output.
A thermometer/weather device that could be individually programmed to say what a person with a disability should wear under certain weather conditions.
It could be secured to the outside door and activated when the door opens. For example, it might say (in different languages):
It's raining... raincoat and umbrella needed.
It's cold.......sweater, jacket, or sweatshirt needed.
It's hot........need sunscreen, lightweight clothes and a hat.
Now, you may be asking why is this product necessary?
Well, one very cold day in Florida (below freezing)
Lauren boarded her bus dressed by
her in-home support staff in a thin, short sleeve shirt (no jacket or sweater).
On another occasion in brutally hot mid-August, Lauren was dressed by another staffer in a pair of leggings with winter boots.
Please know that Lauren has sweatshirts, sweaters, jackets, pants, shorts and shirts in every color in the rainbow.
Apparently some life skills, just can't be learned...
So I'm asking .....Al Roker can you help with this?
