An intelligent clinical thermometer that can distinguish between colds and flu

Before I start programming, I thought about how the graphical user interface could look like. I decided that the time and date cannot be set manually. It always annoys me when I have to set a clock manually. I use TimeSerial here. To do this, the thermometer is connected to the computer via USB and then a small Processing program is called. One mouse click and the current time and date on the computer is transferred to the thermometer. Details can be found here.

Intro starts when the ON-button is pressed.
After the intro, the main menu is called up,
through which sub menues you can scroll by
moving the joystick to the left or right. If the
center button on the joystick is pressed for
sub-menu "OFF", the device switches off.
The device also has an automatic shutdown.
If the joystick is not moved for two minutes, the
device will also switch off, no matter if you are
in the main menu or a submenu.
Sub-menu "MODE", which can be accessed
by pressing the center button on the joystick.
Here you can choose between ear or temporal
artery temperature measurement.
Sub-menu "UNIT", which can be accessed by
pressing the center button on the joystick. Here
you can choose between °C and °F. Default
setting is °C.
Submenu "CLAS", which can be accessed by
pressing the center button on the joystick.
Here the thermometer asks questions about
symptoms and calculates how likely it is that
you have caught a flu or cold.
Submenu "TIME", here you do not need to
press the center button on the joystick. The
time is shown immediately in the upper left
corner of the display.
Submenu "DATE", here you do not need to
press the center button on the joystick. The
date is shown immediately in the upper left
corner of the display.
