UV Sense
by Fuseproject

UV Sense is the world’s first, and smallest, battery-free UV wearable.

Adhering directly on the user’s thumbnail, UV Sense measures exposure to sun rays over a long period of time, providing up to six months of continuous use. The user simply has to wave their phone over the minute device in order to extract its information and pull it into the corresponding app, which will tell the user how much sun exposure they have had, and how to best protect themselves from overexposure. UV Sense helps us to live better, healthier lives.
