Sunaware is a necklace which makes the user aware of UV radiation during the day.
Optic fibers, from which the necklace is made, transport the radiation to a UV sensor hidden in the silver clasp. The amount of radiation is added up during the day and communicated to the user through the small LEDs in the necklace. Too much exposure to UV radiation can cause skin damage (wrinkles) and eventually skincancer. Raising awareness of UV radiation therefore is important. Not only during sunny days, but also when it is cloudy UV radiation damages your skin, even through glass. Sunaware shows that UV radiation is present, even when you wouldn’t expect it to be.
