La Roche-Posay has developed a nail art version of “My UV Patch,” a wearable skin sensor that monitor’s UV exposure. The nail art version, called UV Sense, is an electronic sensor that collects real-time data on UV exposure.

It is less than two millimeters thick, nine millimeters in diameter and is designed to be worn on the thumbnail. It is paired to a smartphone application using NFC technology to collect and display daily UVA and UVB exposure data for up to three months. It also offers personalized sun safety coaching tips, and track trends in UV behavior over time.

“The sun powers the device,” said John Rogers, Ph.D., the engineer who designed the UV dosimeter. “The photodetection unit continuously measures incident UV irradiation, and the cumulative output is captured on a charge storage device that can be read out, at any point, wirelessly via the phone.” Continue to read more.
