When technology comes to our aid… Here we have the real revolution for summer 2015: the hi-tech bikini. This costume has a special sensor to warn you, via a specially connected smartphone or tablet as soon as the number of UV rays stored comes close to passing the body’s tolerance threshold. With a simple and immediate signal – calibrated beforehand based on skin type or the desired tanning level, you can be surer than ever of getting the tan you want. Your tan will be safer and red skin will just be a bad memory. Developed and fine-tuned by start-up company, “Spinali Design”, the new product comes from France and is the work of entrepreneur Marie Spinali. “I got the idea one day at the beach. I saw someone get sunburned and said this to myself: “there are lots of potted flowers that warn when the plants need watering; we should be inventing something to warn us when the sun is too strong.” No sooner said than done! The bikini 2.0 that combats sunburn is now available to purchase online for 149 euros. And there will soon be other new items for men and kids, with sensors that have been fully integrated into the fabrics, while the bikini currently on sale has a sensor hooked onto the costume. Welcome summer, and happy tanning!
