Smartsun distributes products that help children and adults to stay in the sun under safer conditions. The products are easily attached to the body or around the wrist and change color from yellow to pink when it is time to lubricate with more sunscreen factor or avoid the sun.
“The new device lets people know when they’re nearing their limit of ultraviolet (UV) radiation exposure by changing color from yellow to pink as the risk of overexposure increases. They’re cheap (potentially just 15 cents per bracelet), easy to wear and can be thrown out at the end of the day.”

“A Swedish company called Intellego Technologies is set to commercialize a special wristband, much like the kind wrapped around your wrist at concerts and music festivals, that can alert its wearer when it’s time to get out of the sun so as to avoid burning or potentially carcinogenic sun damage.”

“Everyone knows that too much time in the sun can expose you to excessive ultraviolet radiation, which can lead to premature skin aging and, worse, melanoma and other skin cancers. But that’s not going to stop people from cooking themselves in search of the perfect tan. The problem has become an epidemic: more than 3.5 million skin cancers in over 2 million people diagnosed annually in the U.S.”
