L’Oreal: Titans of Tech

No, I’m serious.

It seems our friends over L’Oreal have made something that could help you make sensible choices about your crispness levels courtesy of the ball of fire in Earth’s skies.

UV Sense is a battery-free electronic sensor that’s designed to monitor your sun exposure and, with the help of an NFC-enabled smartphone, help limit your skin cancer risk.

Stick it on your nail, tap it with your phone, and viola, you know how many solar rads you’ve had. In New Zealand we feel the ozone depletion, so this rocks for us.
