L'Oréal's UV Sense
A small sensor that measures ultraviolet exposure and is so tiny that you can wear it on your fingernail. The sensor does not have a battery and has an NFC antenna, a temperature sensor, and a UV sensor. This sensor can store collected data within three months and then transfer information to a companion app. To transmit the information, you just need to bring the sensor close to your smartphone.
The sensor is designed to fit on your fingernail, but L'Oréal's has taken measures to use it in a variety of ways. The company, which works in the field of beauty products, has collaborated on designing UV Sense with renowned Swiss designer Yves Béhar, which shows why this product is more like nail decorations than an advanced technology product.
Smart Modular Blocks
The initial concept of this smart watch goes back to October 2015, but it is launching now. The main idea was of considerable interest and could attract $1.6 million in public investment at Kickstarter. In fact, you can add various modules to your watch if needed. These modules can be a GPS unit, an additional battery, an environmental sensor (for measuring temperature, humidity or air pressure), a heart rate sensor, or even a LED flashlight, which essentially make up smart watch’s strap. The main software of this clock is based on Android version 8 (Oreo), but it also works with iPhone phones.
Lenovo Smart Display
The Lenovo Smart Display, which is powered by Google's Assistant, looks like a more attractive and a higher level version of Amazon Echo Show. In fact, Smart Display, like Echo, is a sound-enabled computer that is equipped with a screen for displaying complementary information. For example, when you ask Google to provide recommendations about restaurants, this screen will show you the near options.
Of course, Lenovo's smart display has several important advantages over Echo Show:
- It is equipped with a large screen
- It has an attractive design that can easily blend with home decoration.
Weight loss headset
The weight loss is a multibillion-dollar industry that has a market with a growing number of people around the world, and the products offered in this area generate enormous profits for supplier companies. Despite the importance of the issue, this area is full of false claims and tricks that promise to fat people not only will they lose weight, but also it will happen with the least effort and difficulty on their part. It can be said that most of the products and solutions offered in the field of weight loss are almost ineffective, and rarely can you find an efficient example among them.
With all of this, Modius Health has introduced a new headset with a futuristic look and feel at the CES 2018, which claims it can reduce the user's weight. This plastic headset is equipped with two dangling electrodes. You need to stick special Pads behind your ears and after putting this headset to the head, attach electrodes to the pads. According to the manufacturer, the headset sends electrical signals to your hypothalamus. The design of this headset has been based on the hypothesis that stimulation of the hypothalamus can reduce your appetite.
