New Wearable Device Qsun Tracks Ultra Violet Rays Exposure
AI-based new wearable device called as QSun tracks exposure to harmful ultraviolet (UV) rays protecting an individual from sun-induced skin damage
Qsun ensures that user is receiving healthy amount of vitamin D from sun exposure along with tracking harmful UV rays. It is easy clip-on device, which is integrated with sensors to measure intensity of UV rays in real-time. Furthermore, it calculates the time for sustainable sun exposure by an individual in order to avoid sun burn and skin disease. Moreover, it sends alert notification on smartphone, when user should get protection from sun.
The wearable device calculates amount of vitamin D produced by user from sun exposure. All the parameters can be examined from QSun app, which allows user to track long-term sun exposure and vitamin D history. Furthermore, app claims that it can specify the quantity of sunscreen, which user needs to apply. It utilizes advanced image processing technology by analyzing health of facial skin. The company aims to provide practical advice rather than giving raw measurements like other wearable devices that incorporate UV sensors. The device is priced at US$ 50 and it will be available for shipping from June 2018.
“There are other products in the market for sun safety like sunscreen patches and wristbands or other smart wearable’s that incorporate UV sensors,” said Neda Ghazi, developer of device. “What makes QSun stand out is that we really take a comprehensive and personalized approach to sun safety based on the specific user.”
