Ever just want to know the temperature of the surface area of some random object? Me neither. But just in case you did, ThinkGeek offers up a Touchless IR Thermometer.

This keychain-sized gadget lets you check the surface temperature of an object at the touch of a button. It works using Infrared so you can measure temperatures without even touching the desire object. It will measure between -27 to 428 °F and can display temperatures in either Fahrenheit or Celsius.

Of course the real problem is it can’t measure internal temperatures. Making it pretty useless as a thermometer.

Get yours for $69.99 at ThinkGeek.
