Despite the fact that summer literally happens every year, we’re always taken by surprise when it eventually rears its sunny head.
The shirts come off, the tinnies come out and half of the population turn into vermillion lobsters.
After nine months of winter, everyone loses control of their senses and immediately gets burned.
But not anymore (hopefully).
Because you can now get a piece of nail art which will not only track your UV exposure level, but will also sync data to an app in real time so you’re continuously informed about the likelihood of skin damage.
L’Oreal has created a wearable sensor called ‘UV Sense’ – a tiny adhesive electronic sensor that’s so small, it can be stuck on your nails.
‘We set out to create something that blends problem-solving technology with human-centred design to reach even more consumers who require additional information about their UV exposure,’ says Guive Balooch, Global Vice President of L’Oreal’s Technology Incubator.

The sensor can be worn up to two weeks each and is battery-free, activated by UV light and is powered by your phone.
Prices are still being finalised but the sensor is going to launch in the US this summer and should be over here by 2018.
So soon, there’ll literally no excuse to get burned anymore, people.
