Temperature variable voltage dividers can easily be made with a thermistor and fixed resistor.
More heat leads to a lower resistance for a NTC thermistor, whereas a PTC thermistor has a higher resistance as heat goes up. I only have NTC thermistors.
I simply use this circuit to touch the NTC thermistor to a large heated resistor in the video. Any heated/cooled item can be used in place of the heated resistor.
My NTC thermistor is close to 10KΩ at room temperature. So dividing the supply voltage with a 10K resistor gives about half supply voltage at room temperature.
Voltage goes up with heat and down with cold in relationship to room temperature in the circuit shown.
