Now for the woman who has everything, a smart bikini! Not just smart looking, but intelligent. It has a built-in alarm that tells the wearer to get out of the sun when UV rays are too powerful for sunbathing.
This is one cool gadget for girls. The two-piece is held together by decorative beads that change colour depending on the intensity of the rays. It works even on cloudy days when people might not be so aware of the sun’s danger.
A tag attached to the bikini has a colour-coded chart explaining the various UV levels and their safety range as well as advice on what factor sun cream to use. The “SmartSwim UV Intensity Bikini” costs around £56and is made by a Canadian company called Solestrom.
It would be a good idea to incorporate this into T Shirts too and also swimwear.
One problem: I can see people staying the sun longer to see them change colour, which I think goes against the whole idea!
