L’Oreal, a cosmetic manufacturing giant comes up with a big leap with this little but hefty invention. They call it the UV Sense – short for UV Sensor (Don’t know if that’s short enough)
UV Sense was introduced at CES Technological Expo 2018. It is a tiny gadget that really sticks to your thumbnail to simply monitor your sun UV exposure and give you some hint if you have had enough or you need some more.
The gadget is NFC (Near Field Communication) enabled for further convenience so that you can monitor results on your own hand-held devices such as Android and iOS.
One of the basic functionality of UV Sense is that is will profile your skin tone to set the point of departure or the threshold in monitoring your exposure to the UV rays.
The product has high sense of loyalty afterwards that it has profiled your sun exposure. It will recommend L’Oreal based products after its assessments.
It comes with replaceable adhesives. Though it is highlighted as that will snap into your fingernails, it will just be fine to stick into other surfaces such as your sunglasses or your watches.
