LogicInk UV Day Tattoo: Know When You’ve Had Enough Sun Exposure

You don’t need to step outside to realize we are experiencing an incredible heatwave. So dangerous that a heat index warning has been issued, outdoor events have been canceled and people are encouraged to stay indoors until it’s over. While days like this are few and we heed the warnings, on a typical day, you may not realize just how much sun exposure you’re getting. Did you know there are an estimated 4.3 million cases of BCC (Basal Cell Carcinoma) diagnosed in the U.S. each year and there’s no sign of that slowing down? It’s way past the time we need to know about the harmful effects of UV overexposure. Here’s a question to yourselves, how do you know when you’ve had enough sun exposure for the day? With the LogicInk UV day tattoo, you can. It’s the future of health wearables.

Logic.Ink UV Day Tattoo

LogicInk UV is designed to measure the cumulative effect of one day in the sun. The outer circle and bar turn fully pink when you reach the daily UV limit for sensitive skin; this is based on data from the World Health Organization. The inner circle and dot show the current UV exposure in real-time. In the above photo, you will see a pink spot; this is the measurement of sun exposure I had prior to applying the LogicInk. I had not yet gone back into the sun while wearing it. As you can see, it’s already letting me know how much sun exposure I’ve had. You’ll also notice the inner circle has no color, indicating I’m not currently exposed to the sun as I was indoors.

Upon venturing outside, you’ll notice the inner circle has now turned pink, showing my real-time, full exposure to the sun. As previously stated, the LogicInk UV day tattoo signals when you’ve had enough sun for the day. Applied to your skin like a temporary tattoo, the waterproof adhesive is gentle on the skin, yet resilient enough to last in the ocean or pool. LogicInk UV is even compatible with sunscreen; just apply the LogicInk UV on clean, dry skin, then apply sunscreen over your skin and on LogicInk.  The sunscreen is designed to expire faster from LogicInk’s surface than it does on your skin. This is a helpful early warning to reapply sunscreen or get some shade.

While you don’t need a smartphone to see your UV exposure status, there is an optional mobile app that lets you scan your LogicInk “tattoo” to track UV exposure patterns over longer periods of time. LogicInk UV day tattoos are available in single or on subscription-based purchases. Get 10 for $39.00 as a single purchase or 15 for $29/month, and 30 for $79.00 if you subscribe.

Protect Yourself From Cellphone Radiation With a Pong Case

A couple of months ago I wrote about Native Union’s Pop Phone which helps protect you against cellphone radiation by keeping your cellphone away from your head, well here’s another mobile accessory that will further help protect you from direct contact with wireless device radiation while optimizing the way your mobile devices perform; this amazing product is The Pong Case. While here are a slew of earpieces on the market, most cellphone users usually have their phones pressed up directly against their ears (I myself am guilty of that) and I’m sure like me, most of you sleep with your cellphones very near to you – a habit which can be equally dangerous to you. “Some estimate that up to 90% of young adults (age 18 to 29) sleep with their cellphones, with many teens using them well into the night”. I am a long sufferer of headaches and learning about the Pong Cases has made me realize my cellphone just might be the cause of those frequent headaches, which is why I was more than happy to test out the HTC Evo 4G Pong™ Case (which comes in white, black and red)

So what is Pong? Pong is a manufacturer of wireless device cases that help protect you from cell phone radiation from your iPhones, iPads, Blackberry and Android devices, which, in 2011, the World Health Organization classified as a possible carcinogen – of course you don’t need a genius to tell you radiation is bad for your health.

Your cell phone antennas emits a powerful form of microwave energy called electromagnetic radiation (EMR). Since the long term health effects of exposure to microwave EMR are unknown, most of us should want to avoid unnecessary exposure but as avid mobile users, we all want a powerful cell phone. We crave our phones to have and show maximum signal strength, reflected by the number of “bars” on our phones, but we never think about the effects. Did you know that the signal strength of your phone is related to the magnitude or intensity of the EMR which it produces and receives? – The lower the signal strength, the greater the intensity of EMR emitted by your phone. Pong devices are uniquely designed to solve this dilemma for cellphone users by embedding a patented antenna technology in each case that redirects and redistributes the radiation that would otherwise be absorbed by the user’s head and body. Pong reduces your radiation exposure by up to 95% below FCC and internationally established safety limits as measured on the SAR scale.

Pong has released a new Lexan line of cases in “soft touch” and “leather touch” for iPhone 4S, 4 and 3GS; 8 BlackBerries (including the new 9900/9930), and 3 Android phones—with more in development. Pong has also shipped unique, patent-pending solutions for the iPad and iPad 2, with other tablet devices coming soon. Pong sells these products exclusively on its website at www.pongresearch.com.
