QSun Holdings developed a device to track UV exposure, which helps balance levels of vitamin D in the body.

A smart UV tracker has been developed to manage exposure to the sun, alerting users of when it is appropriate to move out of the sun into a shady place.

Over the recent past, several devices such as bracelets, papers, and thumbnail-sized discs have been developed to help track UV exposure. The new development, however, does more than just track exposure to UV rays. The QSun analyzes a user’s skin type and their environmental situation to offer personalized sun safety advice.

This device is handled through an app, which helps analyze skin tones through the device’s camera and image processing software. The app further offers personalized sunscreen advice based on the clothes being worn by the user, advising how much sunscreen needs to be applied and alerting when it is time to reapply.

The QSun device is circular and tiny, measuring merely an inch in diameter. This device can be clipped onto a user’s hat, clothes facing the sun. On shaking the Shaking device twice, it turns on and immediately checks for UV intensity, while another shake helps notify the device that sunscreen has been applied as directed. The device then vibrates and its LEDs light up when it detects that the user is about to get sunburned, alerting the user to head for shade or reapply sunscreen. The tracker is powered by a coin cell battery that works for six weeks. The company has not yet revealed when it plans to launch the product, however, it has made mention that it intends to sell this device at US$ 50.
