Rogers Group and Loreal team up to monitor UV exposure
Collaborating with Loreal, John Rogers' lab developed the world's smallest wearable device. The "UV Sense" is worn on the fingernail to measure UV from sun exposure and it was recognized as one of the six coolest gadgets exhibited at the 2018 Consumer Electronic Show.
The reusable electronic sensor — which can record and store up to three months' worth of data —communicates with a smartphone app which tracks the level of UV-related risk and suggests better habits, including when to get out of the sun and reapply sunblock. Loreal plans to make the sensor, which is battery-less and can be worn for up to two weeks before a new adhesive is needed, available for consumer purchase in summer 2018.
