LUXES bracelet is an innovative, durable ultraviolet radiation monitor that displays the amount of your UV radiation exposure. LUXES bracelet provides an easy to understand indicator to show you that UV radiation exists in your surroundings, so you can apply proper sun protection to prevent sunburn, wrinkles, and skin cancer. LUXES bracelet works in all weather conditions and even under water.
LUXES consists of a bracelet and a UV activated insert. LUXES uses a proprietary smart material to create the UV activated insert. The silicone rubber-based smart material will darken in color when exposed to UV radiation to simulate human skin reaction to UV radiation. The color changing action is reversible when the smart material is removed from the UV source.
Users can apply a small amount of sunscreen onto the LUXES’s UV activated insert to track the effectiveness of the sunscreen. The sunscreen will block the UV radiation and keep the UV activated insert from changing color. When the sunscreen naturally breaks down, the color will slowly begin to darken to alert users to reapply sunscreen.
LUXES bracelet is an extension of Canopy Valley project to help educate general public about sun safety and help people to be SunSmart. Your help and contribution will make LUXES bracelet closer to the reality. THANK YOU VERY MUCH!
