L’Oreal UV Sense

Australian T3 - - 2018’S GADGET WISHLIST -

This is the first wear­able, bat­tery-free elec­tronic sen­sor for de­tect­ing UV light lev­els – stick the tiny pad onto your fin­ger­nail be­fore you head out for a day in the sun, and it tells an ac­com­pa­ny­ing app on your phone when your level of ex­po­sure to harm­ful rays is get­ting too high (and bet­ter coach you on sun­block­ing up). It was cre­ated with gadget-de­sign mae­stro Yves Béhar, and is ac­ti­vated by UVA and UVB rays. It’s 2mm thick, and L’Oreal claims it could be worn for sev­eral weeks. Ex­pect to see it launch un­der the com­pany’s La Roche-Posay brand in the US very soon, and world­wide next year. $TBC, lo­real.com
