It sounds comical. An eye patch or sunglasses to read body temperature.
But new technology developed by a Yale University researcher aims to do just that, providing athletes with a constant reading of body temperature to prevent heat stroke and dehydration.
The wireless technology, unveiled in Singapore on Tuesday, triggers an alarm when body temperature reaches a pre-set level -- sending a reminder to sweaty athletes to guzzle water when their body gets too warm.
Giant Wireless Technology said "TempAlert" could also be used to detect diseases such as the flu-like Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome that spread early this year to about 30 countries through travelers, killing hundreds of people worldwide.
