[CEATEC 2011] While nobody likes wearing unsightly devices to help them keep track of their health, RHOM might have found a way around the problem. At CEATEC 2011, the company showed off its new range of Techno-jewelry – UV and pulse wave sensors designed in the form of accessories that women can wear without ruining their outfits. These specially designed sensors will come in the form of earrings, bracelets, and necklaces.
Pulse wave sensors can be used to calculate the heart rate of a person, while the UV sensors can be used to detect the amount of ultraviolet radiation i.e. to be used when sunbathing so the wearer knows when they’ve had enough of UV-A and UV-B to prevent sunburnt skin or even wrinkles and blemishes. The Techno-jewelry can also send readings to a smartphone app for more detailed readings which can be used to warn the wearer of any problems.
No word on when it’ll hit the market or whether RHOM will be creating a lineup for men, but it sounds like good news for the health and fashion conscious folk out there.
